Do your boobs really stay bigger after you've breastfed?

Ok I did not bf my dd. I'm pregnant again though and want to bf this baby. I'm really afraid of my boobs getting huge though. THey are already DD. I don't care during breastfeeding I'm asking about after I'm done. Will they shrink back, or possibly get smaller (fingers crossed, lol). Or did your boobs get big and stay big?

  • Mine have shrunk and I stopped about 2 1/2 weeks ago. If I lean forward i fall out of my bras. They don't fit anymore. I was a DD to begin with as well.

  • Mine got smaller once i stopped. I was also pretty uneven during breastfeedin (I tended to nurse him longer on the left so I could multi-task) but they evened out afterwards.

  • It just depends on the woman. Everyone is different. You know how that is with us and pregnancy!

  • your breasts won't be bigger after you are done breastfeeding unless you put on weight(Personally breastfeeding made me lose a lot of weight). Here is a great website that will be very helpful to you for breastfeeding questions

  • i dont think its that they get smaller than they were befor you ever got pregnant, they just are a little squishier so they look a little smaller (but just a little) but they will be waaay smaller than during the breastfeeding (if you're anythign like i was they got huge during breastfeeding) but then went pretty much back to normal.

  • Mine stayed the same size. It is different for everyone. I know some people who got bigger and some who got smaller and some like myself who basically stayed the same.
