  • I don't believe it does... Maybe if you are only using one breast? Being pregnant, drastic wieght changes might.

  • It will affect the breast if you are not being careful to alternate breast when feeding. It would be very very slight.

  • Well, if you've just nursed from a breast, it may be smaller than the other. Your breasts will never ben the same after pregnancy, whether you breastfeed or not.

  • What if, the breast became asymmetrical? are there any remedies for it other than surgery?

  • Are you meaning after breastfeeding? If so, the only fix would be plastic surgery, I'm afraid.

  • You can have 1 breast bigger/smaller then the other w/out even having children. Sometimes they just don't grow exactly equal. If it isn't a drastic difference then I wouldn't worry about it.
