  • I nrused the first time for a year, and now for 6 1/2 months so far, and no they have changed for ever. They are now what I lovingly call tribeswoman boobies.

  • I breastfed my first for three months; afterward, my boobs shrunk. My second I breastfed for 20 1/2 months and once again, my boobs shrunk. Oh, and I got stretch marks both times (luckily, they're on the underside of my boobs, so they're not overly noticeable).

  • i nursed my babies until they were about 18 months. my boobs were completely gone after that. i was like a b cup before, after i had nothing at all. you could actually count my ribs all the way up my chest. good thing for silicone though.

  • Go look at your own mom or any other woman in your blood line who gave birth. Doesn't matter whether they nursed or not. THEY are your template.

    PREGNANCY changes your breasts forever, not nursing. There are only two things you can do (besides surgery) to ensure you always have the same breasts...never get pregnant, and move to a zero-gravity environment.

    Otherwise, get to know the new you.

  • a lot of the previous are right, its not nursing that changes your breasts, its pregnancy. I have breastfed FOUR babies. The first 3 were nursed anywhere from 15 months up to 24 months. The breasts always look the same afterwards, they don't change any in that regard.

    Please do not base your decision to breastfeed based on how your boobs will look afterwards. What is more important? Providing nourishment for your baby or having hot looking boobs that no one but you and your s/o will be seeing anyway.
