Post bf boobs

Just curious but how they are after weaning? Do your nips stay this big?! My right boob is about 2 sizes bigger than the left! How close do they get back to "normal"? Thanks!

Re: Post bf boobs

my nips stayed the same. Three months later, and they went back to pre-pregnancy size...just not as perky

Re: Post bf boobs

Well with my son I never had any the pregnancy enlargement like I had hoped. They did get darker, which did go away. I also had them two different sizes, but it never did go away. This time around my breasts got huge while pregnant and even bigger while breastfeeding, so I am hoping that they stay!

Re: Post bf boobs

My breasts were the exact same before nursing, while nursing, and after weaning. The only difference is that while I was nursing, they were rather firm because they were full of milk. I think it all depends if you are the type of person who gains weight in your chest or not.

My boobs SHRUNK! I went from a 34D to a 32C/34B. They are a tiny bit more saggy too, but not bad.

I think it also depends on how long you nurse. The first year did not change my boobs at all...but after that...

After ODS weaned they were bigger but floppy not perky like they use to be.

Now they are looking ok, but I'm sure they will deflate again when DS2 weans.

Mine deflated big time when my kiddos weaned! But after 6 months or so, they perk right back up. Not that I was ever firm to begin with I've always been a softie, lol.

Aside from being flatter on top related to PREGNANCY-not breastfeeding-mine went back to normal, a little smaller actually, shortly after weaning my second oldest daughter.
