Loss of sensitivity after nursing

I have a significant amount of sensitivity before I breastfed my 2nd child.

I never nursed my first child and didn't have this problem.

I don't understand why this happened. I was small busted; once my milk came in, I went up two bra sizes. Husband loved it. Me not so much after five months I wasn't producing enough milk my son demanded and stopped.

I noticed right away. I feel less of a woman. Please help me understand.

Sensitivety Returns

I am not sure I quite understand. I think what you are trying to say is that your breast/nipple sensitivity is reduced after you stopped breastfeeding. If so then don't despair!

I remember a few days after I first gave birth and used an electric pump at the highest setting and geez; it felt as though I was going to rip my nipple off! I used it for a couple of weeks and then did not use it again until about 2 1/2 months later. I thought the machine must be faulty because I could not feel it even on the highest setting. But about three months after I stopped breastfeeding I was packing things away and tried to pump again out of curiosity. Well, the sensitivity was back!!!!!

It's been almost a year since I stopped breastfeeding my second baby and I am sorry to say I have almost no nipple sensitivity.
