I want to get a breast reduction but still breast feed any suggestions?

I am 26 and have 2 boys, 4 yrs and 10 mos. I am a 38 DD and have fibrosystic breast. and upper back, neck and shoulder pain, thats associated with it. I have a military medical provider so getting approved for the reduction is not a problem, however, deciding when is. I want another baby, but I don't have to breast feed. But I want to even after a reduction. Should i wait and risk getting even bigger and having more problems with my breast or have the surgury and see what happens?

  • wait, cause u might not be able to breast feed after a reduction. it all depends on how many milk ducts they remove when they do the reduction, which all depends on what size u want to get to. plus, if u do it first, and then get breastfeed, u run the risk of them getting bigger anyways.
