Support your breast with your hand, by forming a C hold. With the palm
of your hand under your breast and your thumb on top. Make sure that
your fingers are not touching your areola.
Gently massage your breasts before and during breastfeeding, this will
ensure that all milk ducts are drained; this will minimize
breastfeeding lumps, which most larger breasted women struggle with.
When using a pump, make sure that the flanges fit properly. Most
pumps are not sold with a larger flange. Medela makes a PersonalFit
that comes with two special size flanges for larger breasts.
Does a Woman Nursing with Large Breasts Produce more Milk?
Not necessarily, irrespective of breast size, what really counts is the number of mammary glands present. Some women may have large breasts, but the breasts may contain more fat than breast tissue.
A large breasted woman has a large volume of breast tissue and will, therefore, have a large storage capacity. She would feed her baby a lot of milk at one time. Mothers with small breasts would need to nurse often, to keep up with the baby's needs.
