Could they be too large...

Could your breast actually be too large to breastfeed. I am a 'DD' for example, and think it would be rather difficult.

  • No that's not to large, it is possible, You just have to hold them a little bit more than you would smaller breasts!

  • You'll be fine. I've heard of people having trouble with nipple size but not breast size.

  • Nope I am an E and breastfeed just fine. I had to hold my breast up off of her face alittle but other then thath it works just like if you had a smaller chest.

  • G cup with nipples / areolas bigger then most women's breasts, can't even connect my fingers around them, and I was able to breastfeed until LO self weaned. Breast size has no baring on one's ability to breastfeed.  I found it easier to feed with big breasts because they fell at the right level leaving you to assist in other ways.  Good Luck you will do great!
