  • Your beast do not stay hard and sore for long.

  • Breastfeeding and pumping do not change your breasts. Pregnancy and age do.

  • I may have read it wrong. If you are referring to hard and sore all the time, mine were only that way if I was engorged from not nursing on time.

  • Mine were sore for a while in the begining, but never really got hard, its just if they are engourged with milk that they will be hard. Mine always just felt like they always did a little bit fuller though.

  • mine were only hard and sore when i was engorged. as soon as i would feed my baby or pump they would be soft again, til they filled back up. they were never hard unless they were engorged.

  • No, the full had feeling is bad. It is really only when you're engorged. You dont want that. Full breasts tell your body that you are producing too much milk and to slow down production.
