First of all, a very humorous thread. It makes me glad I never had to bf. HAHA... A side note. mommylicious, I think you have a cute thumbnail of you feeding your baby. What's funny, is that my guy friend (no, not a boyfriend.. yet) was in here when I was reading through and he saw it and just about choked. Trust me, it's a compliment. He thinks you're ample so that's your compliment from him for the day. lol
Hi- As I'm a mom of 2 and currently breastfeeding my second child I too am worried about deflation. I was doing some reading some time ago on Google (the source of all my medical and financial information) and I found an interesting research study. It seemed the goal was to determine the cause of deflation. It was done in the US which made sense because you can find a lot of women who had breastfed and women who had not at all. Anyhow, in a nutshell it was found that more influential on sagginess and deflation were the number of pregnancies and overall weight gain. It was said that the hormones which affect breasts during pregnancy had the same effect on those women who had breastfed and on those who hadn't. What do you all think?
ladyc, I'm not sure what to think. I had to go to formula for my dd, and my breasts have stayed the same size even after the milk dried up (that was a painful two weeks of bandaging!) I went from a 34B to a 36DD and that's where I still am, 8 weeks later. We'll see how long they last...
I was always proud of my "girls," but after baby #3, my "girls" were no "guys." What happened???? I nursed the last 2 of my children each for one year. I lost a ton of weight (too much) after #3 and when I was done nursing, my "girls" were flat, deflated and saggy....gross. I have never been more self conscious of them as I am now. Buying a bra is great for when I am clothed and my husband is always kind when I am undressed, but I feel horrible and depressed. I am fine with the rest of my body, but I WILL be getting implants. A few of my friends who are all done having children, as am I, got implants and they look fantastic! For now, bras will have to do.
after nursing my first for a year and having nice boobs, I was heartbroken when we weaned and they went from a nice D cup to a AA!!!!!! After about a year they started perking back up a bit, but then I became pregnant with #2. I plan on a 'wait and see' approach. The only person who actually sees my breasts anymore is my husband, and he's fine with how they look as long as he's the only one who gets full access .
Watch your language
Ask me about INTACTIVISM
It is funny because I came onto this board b/c my concern is that my breasts are so large now that they are only going to get bigger and never heard about nursing making them deflate. Can this happen for large breasted women too? I do think that good bras can make a huge difference.
I am a proud mom of 2 beautiful baby's, but not so proud of my boobs. I was only 20 when I got pregnant with my son, and I had huge, perky, lovely breasts. Then I had him and they got even bigger, then deflated. Now they are all saggy, and I even have stretch marks all across them now, as if my stomach wasn't bad enough!
I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight but I am so unhappy about my breasts now I hate them. I can't believe my eyes are watering, It's just I hate shopping for clothes, and bra's don't even get me started, I'm constantly tugging at my bra. They fall out of the tops & sides even my Victoria's secret bra. It's rare I take my bra off, even when I have sex with my husband. I would shower with it on, I'm not even kidding!
Any suggestions would help, I feel myself becoming more and more depressed over this all Thanks
hello girls glad to hear I am not the only one with the bf sagging boobs problem. I have breast fed all seven of my children the oldest is now 17 and the youngest is 4 I stopped breastfeeding her when she was about to turn 2. I am sad to say that I to have the sagging empty sacks I use to once call breast and to tell you the truth if i had the money to get breast inplants I would do it in a heartbeat not to mention a tummy tuck.
someday u will be grandma and ur boobs will sag anyway and probably would sag after pregnancy with or without nursing. boobs dont make the woman; i think it is sad that this stops some women from nursing. life is toooo short!!
good 4 u! bf is the best!
