Here who are breast feeding?  Did you have complications other than what most have?  What methods made it easier to feed new born with such huge breast?  I am a DDD

I'm something like a G - I can't remember.  I'm tall, about the weight I should be.  I can't stand it anymore.  I'm researching plastic surgeons.  If you can build a case with a doctor/chiropractor, you may be able to get it covered by insurance.

I'm an f/g cup and I found the football hold position the easiest while nursing her as a newborn. No issues. :)

I'm a G. I have inverted nipples. It was really hard to nurse my first. I never felt like we fully ever got it, even though she was almost eleven months when I weaned her. My second latched on within an hour of being born, never had any problems.
I always worried about smothering them lol. But I didn't wear and nurse, nor did I cosleep, so I was wide awake with my nose in their business for all their feedings.
Don't let anyone tell you not boobies make it harder to bf. Because they are bigger, they store more, so pumping can be easier. Other than that, there's no difference.

I don't even know what size I am anymore, just that I spill out of a DDD a lot.  The only issue I have ever had related to breast size is that I have to use a finger to keep my breast from covering their nose as a newborn.  I have nursed four kids.

I found proper positioning and supporting breast in the beginning to be crucial.

I was an I and found that side lying was easiest.

I am a 36h and have had no problems other than finding a store that sells nursing bras in my size that I can actually try on.

Wellll I'm not sure how accurate because my DD mom looks bigger but This E size I'm wearing even doesnt seem quite big enough but some DDs work for me.

Never had problems outside of keeping my nipples in my bra and over active letdown
