  • No, breasts do most of their growing during pregnancy. They may grow a bit in the 1st month. Mine shrank gradually during breastfeeding. When I weaned DD at 21 months and twin DS at 56 months, mine were back to where they were before I got pregnant. My BF was bigger after she weaned and my cousin didn't nurse and ended up smaller. Everyone is different.

  • Mine never did. I wore the same bra (and it fit) before, during, and after. Of course mine weren't small to start out with.

  • Only when I got engorged. That went away fairly quickly, though, once my supply regulated.

  • Mine did all four times. And mine never went back to their original size when I stopped breastfeeding. I am bigger now than what I was before I had kids. Everyone is diff though.

  • Your breast do grow and if you are hoping for bigger breast post bf then the one thing I have noticed between weaning my oldest from my youngest, the more milk in the breast when you are done bf the bigger they will stay. B4 I ever got pregnant I was flat after my last I was close to a B which is good enough for me.

    Good luck!!
