Is it true that if you breastfeed you lose sensitivity in your nipples?

Only mothers who have breastfed need to apply to this question.

  • No it's not true, at least not for me, it may hurt to breastfeed at first but after a while it gets better your body has to adjust, you and your baby has to learn proper latching.

  • Mine are more sensitive since breast feeding. But they don't get "stimulated" like that while nursing or pumping.

    And honestly, nursing has made my boobs look so much better. I think breast feeding us the greatest thing I have ever done for myself.

  • I had very little feeling in them before nursing. I don't know if it was due to having large breasts to begin with? After I nursed my DD, they are super sensitive.

  • Never heard of that. Mine are more sensitive then they were before I had children.
