Ok so I want to breast feed this baby. I am due September 24th with my first. I have kinda a embaressing question though. My boobs are beyong saggy. I have very saggy 38 DD boobies. My nipples dont point foward they go in like opposite directions. Is it still possible for me to breastfeed. I dont see how I could use the cradle hold, the football hold or the laying down method to breastfeed since my nipples point in weird directions.

Can anyone help??????

If you have boobs and nipples, you can most likely breastfeed. Your baby doesn't care what they look like or which way they point...

I really don't see why you couldn't.

Your nipples are supposed to poit out.
An where you have bigger breasts, you will be able to push the nipples whatever way you need to feed your baby.

You can guide your breast to the baby's mouth to successfully use any hold (pretty much).

It may help to take a breastfeeding class through your hospital if you are nervous, but like someone else said, if you have boobs and nipples you are off to a good start :P

Yes you can that's no reason to not breastfeed. You will have to pick your breast up and position it.

Get a good nursing bra with a good fit and support. The cup will open for feeding but will have some fabric supporting your breast still. Of course you can nurse! If you have to hold your breast as you nurse you can do that too. You'll get the hang of it!

Mine are the same size, and droopy.  Didn't cause any problems bf.  You'll get the hang of it.
