If you breast feed does your breast stay the same size?

My husband just told me that if i dont breast feed then my boobs will stay the same size... I dont know if that is true sounds alittle wierd to me but i think it is because my boobs have gotten alot bigger and he wants them to stay..

  • It's untrue. Even if you dont breastfeed you boobs with get bigger because it still filling with milk. I didnt BF my first and my boobs got bigger and stayed that way.

  • I breast fed and my boobs stayed the same size, just not as full and perky. They look a little sad now. I think your breasts will change whether you bf or not.

  • The breast get fuller with milk but if they stay big after you wean or dry up, then that's genetics and you've put on fat weight in them.

    The size of the breast isn't based on breastfeeding or not.

  • My breasts went from an F cup before I got pregnant, to an I cup then right back down to an F cup, and I didn't get enough milk to breastfeed! No, they don't stay as big whether you breastfeed or not, but I was hoping mine would end up a little smaller......

  • Mine got bigger and STAYED bigger. I was a full C before I got pregnant, a DD while breastfeeding, and they're still a DD. Actually, I'm pregnant again, and they're getting even bigger, I'm really hoping they'll come down after this one, it's getting ridiculous :|

  • Mine always get bigger when I breast feed and go back to the normal size once I stop. With my first pregnancy they actually got a little bigger but not by much. I went from a small B to a full B. When I breast feed I never properly measure myself but I am at least a full C.

  • It is scientifically proven that breastfeeding plasy no real role in saggy or bigger boobs. Mostly pregnancy is what causes all that. Breastfeeding does nothing to your boobs.

  • I went form a large A/ small B to spilling out of a DD. I breast feed. The shape of my breasts is way better than before. They are more symmetrical.
