  • When I had milk my boobs where huge like fake boobs. After it dried up they went back to the size they were before pregnancy, but they do not look as young as they used too lol but my husband doesn't notice.

  • Can I first tell you that you are simply amazing. I believe that breasts are for one reason.

  • I breastfeed my first baby for a year and my boobs where a little big and when i would work and not breastfeed my boobs would get hard and i be in alot of pain, I tried bumping my breast with a hand pump and an electric one and dang did it hurt. After I stopped breastfeeding my breast went back to their normal size and i have to use a wire bra now to keep them lefted. Booo

  • i had no changes after breast feeding my first two. but then there were twins. after i stopped breastfeeding my breasts looked like deflated balloons : ( they are only small to begin with, so small and deflated? yuck! after a few months they seemed to get a little fullness to them...but i was only pregnant again!
