If you b/f and have stopped are your boobs smaller than they were before? This is what has happened to all my girlfriends who finished b/f...is that what usually happens??

  • I breastfed for 2 months and had to stop and use formula. No, my boobs aren't smaller than before but FLATTER than before which can make some women's look smaller. Definetly not the same boobs as before the baby..lol!!

  • With my oldest that happened but not with my second one, still nursing my youngest so I dunno but its all genetic as to how your breasts will react to pregnancy and BFing and life in general, its pregnancy that changes them not the BFing part

  • This is what has happened to every mom I know, and none of them breastfeed. As already mentioned... it's the fluctuation in pregnancy that changes the breasts. Nursing only puts it off.
