  • Not impossible, but it can be very challenging. I am an F Cup, while breast feeding I was an I cup. I couldn't just hold my baby to nurse, I had to put a pillow beside me, and nurse him from the side....I couldn't go anywhere, and it was impossible to find a bra. Since I had c-sections, I did try to nurse for the 6-8 weeks that I was pretty much stuck home recovering.

  • Absolutely not. You prbably won't be able to nurse with one hand free..but it is completely doable.

  • It certainly can be done! Positioning the baby can be more challenging but pillows help and learn to BF laying on your side.

  • Of course not! I had a DDD with the first two and never had an issue, in fact I think it's easier. With this one I'm up to a G cup...

  • I have a friend who is a DDD when she's not breastfeeding, and when she is, they're HUGE. No problems breastfeeding for her.

  • It's totally possible. I was a DDD BEFORE I got my milk in, and when it first came in I was at least an H. My friends mom was the same way. Our boobs were bigger than our babies and we breastfed (literally a single breast was larger than our baby).

  • I agree with everyone else, it is so doable, I did it with 2 kids just find.. Pillows or a boppy helps a lot
