  • I have implants under the muscle, my sister has hers over the muscle. She BFed both of her kids for over a year, I'm at 9 months and still going strong.

    You should be fine, there are LCs available if you have problems. I'd also recommend a BFing class.

  • It depends on the individual and what type of surgery you had. You should talk to your doctor.

  • I know your able to do it but i would talk to a nurse that specializes in breast feeding. I wish i was more help.

  • It depends, every one is different. I'd get in touch with an IBCLC and your local LLL before delivery for advice and support.

  • your implants rest in a pocket separate from your milk ducts. you should have no problem nursing at all.

  • I have breast implants also. I don't breastfeed. I think it depends on where your implants were placed. Over/under the muscle. I noticed a difference in the feel of my breast after my first child and after my second child. The nurse told me that there are lots of women with implants that do successfully breastfeed and there are some who aren't able too.
