Don't know where to ask this but.....

Is it true that women with big boobs have a hard time BF? I am expecting a new baby soon & is very big chested & I would like to BF. So any advice would be great thanks.

  • I'm really small and I had a hard time, usually I see women with big breast doing it, I don't think I've ever seen someone with small boobs breast feed. So your fine!!

  • Well I have jumbo boobs and the only 2 disadvantages I think I have to some one with smaller breasts when breastfeeding is if they are huge then you some times have to hold the baby differently and make sure you dont suficate them and My opinion is that women with large breasts have more of a tendency to get mastitis other than that NO ;~)

  • No, not at all. I'm a DD and I did just fine. Think possitive and get some help while your in the hospital. You will do just fine. You may leak a little more though. You may need to get some nursing pads~ I did, worked out great. Good Luck. Remember think possitve, its so good for baby and you. Wonderful one on one time....priceless!

    It is absolutely NOT true.

    Have you joined the Breastfeeding Moms group yet? They have some wonderful women in that group who can answer any question you throw at them in a non judgemental way.
