  • I breastfed my third child and after I was done breastfeeding her at 14 months mine shrunk big time. I mean I wasn't big boobed in the first place but they are smaller now then they were before I ever started.

  • BREASTFEEDING DOES NOT make you smaller! It doesn't make you droopy either! Nursing can make you bigger at first, but pregnancy is what changed the size, shape, etc. Not nursing.

  • Mine got bigger and stayed bigger..So I don't think BF does it...I think it's just your body changing during pregnancy probally..

  • Yes, I think it definitely depends on the woman. When my sister got pregnant with her first, she was a perky C and she breastfed for a year . . . second baby never latched on . . either way, now she is a DD . . however, she could tuck them in her belt.

  • Actually, it's not that your breasts get smaller because you nurse. It's that your breasts get BIGGER WHILE you're nursing, then, when you stop, they go pretty much back to the same cup size they were before. So, if you were small before, then you nurse, while you nurse they will be bigger, when you wean they will be smaller again. If you don't nurse, after your baby is born, they will be bigger (and hurt because they're engorged) until your milk dries up, then they will be smaller again.

    As far as not being as firm, etc, to a certain extent, that's going to happen whether you nurse or not, being pg and having your milk come in at all causes that, as well as how supportive your bra is during your pg / nursing time.
