  • The only thing that hurt was when my DD started biting and I found a way to get her to quit that after 2 days and it hurt me emotionally at 16 months when she deiced she was done breastfeeding. I was sad it went by too fast. And, yes my boobs are a size smaller than they were before I got pregnant so I am now a 32A :( Oh well, atleast they are so small they can't sag. lol

  • No it doesnt hurt. Yes your breast will change some even if you dont breastfeed. It just happens when you have kids.

  • Pregnancy alters their shape (height) so not too much turning back, there. ;-)
    BFing doesn't hurt e (I sleep right throughall the time), but it can be uncomfortable while learning and if there is a problem.
    With help, support, encouragement, no prob!!
    ;-D
    Best wishes!!

  • Yes they will hurt for a bit at first. You have to remember they are not use to someone sucking on them so much. but after 4 to 6 weeks or less that will go away. It is so worth it. They will change in some why. Mine did not get smaller. Mine got bigger but also sags quite a bit. But nothig a good bra can hide and know one will know unless you tell them and well of course your hubby/SO

  • It's different for every woman. Some women feel no discomfort while others feel very sore at first.

  • Yes, it hurts but just right in the beginning. I remember thinking about a month into, oh, this doesn't hurt anymore. Then as a pp said, when they start to bite. My dd is getting teeth and the biting was happening for about three days and then stopped. Hopefully it is over.

  • I had some pain for the first two week.

    Contrary to old wives tales, pregnancy (and age and gravity) change your breasts, not breastfeeding.

  • If you're doing it right and baby is latched properly it shouldn't hurt at all.
