Size has absolutely nothing to do with the ability to breastfeed!
No matter what the size or shape of your breasts, the ability to produce
breast milk lies in the presence of breast tissue.
Women with large breasts, often have
the same amount of breast tissue “milk producing cells” as smaller
breasted women. What makes their breasts so much larger you ask? FAT. (This is not always the case though, some women do have more breast tissue than others)
Breastfeeding with small breasts? Leave a comment below...
Even the flattest chested women can breastfeed. Also, remember
that a woman’s breasts will mature and grow during pregnancy; you only
know your true bra size after having your first baby.
Overall, women with smaller breasts usually find latching on and positioning a lot easier than women with large breasts.
The only thing that may make a difference, is that a small breasted woman
may have a lower storage capacity, which means that she may need to
breastfeed more often than a larger breasted mother.
Breastfeeding on demand
will be especially important, as to make sure that the baby (of a smaller breasted mom) is drinking enough during the day.
