    Quick BF question...

    Advertisements
    I am breastfeeding my son. I cant remember for the life of me my boobs being sooo big. Will the milk supply kinda work itself out? My boobs are HUGE right now and I am trying to feed him as much as possible. This is my 3rd time around and I should remember but for the life of me I cant! Please help me

    they will go down a little, but they will still be about a cup size larger than normal until right before you stop, at least that is my experience

    oh yes, it'll settle down. it engorges at first because it's coming in so fast but after about a month, i think it starts to "learn" what your baby needs and what time of day your baby needs it and it will taper off to that amount. it was crazy because when i stopped breastfeeding at night and letting keahi sleep through the night, my boobs didn't hurt...they just adjusted and made enough milk for the daytime. the body is a miraculous thing.

    they will settle down. If you are getting a lot of pain and leaking, try expressing a little, just enough to ease the pain. Good luck sweetie

    Thanks so much, I could not remember my boobs doing this with my other two. They are about double f's right now. I am bursting out of my bras and I am going to get some new ones but I just could not remember. Thank you all so very much!
