For those that breastfed and have saggy boobs....

Do you think it is harder to breastfeed when you have saggy boobs than when you don't?

It seems the downward pointing nipples and rocks in socks thing would make it more difficult?  

Mine were pretty saggy with my last kid and it was kind of hard getting everything lined up and comfortable. I had to hold my boob in place.  After losing a lot of weight, my titties are even droopier now.  Eeek!

I find it easier to just flop my bobbies around in the middle of the night and stick it in his mouth

I am asking if once they are droopy, does it make breastfeeding more difficult?

With my last one, I would lay on my side and the booby that was the highest would sag all the way down and that is the one I would feed him with...lol.  Yuck.

And that is why I wore a supportive nursing bra.

I don't know if I consider my boobs saggy.. They're just big. But yeah, sometimes I would have to hold them in place but I managed to figure out how to position my son in a way that I wouldn't feel like I'm suffocating him. 

I also want to add that it's not breastfeeding that causes saggy boobs.

I'm not sure what that has to do with it.

Lmao! I did that too!


Also I used the football hold a lot because it was just easier to have the kid under my boob to begin with, instead of trying to lift my breast up.
