Breastfeeding with implants

Has anyone on here who has had breast augmentation been able to breast feed their baby? I have silicone gel implants that are under the muscle. They say you should be able to breast feed but that every situation is different. I am hoping ill be able to. I got my breasts enhanced after my first child (because of the way they looked after having him haha)

You should ask the ladies at the breastfeeding forum, I have heard they are really helpful. I have no idea that's why.

Oh ok thank you. I didn't know there was one. I use the mobile version of this app and it doesn't show as many things!

I have saline implants and was able to breastfeed just fine. If your implant is under the muscle it shouldn't disrupt your mammory glands. People that have breast augumentations have the same chance of bfing as some one who doesn't..according to my surgeon. I had a much bigger supply than all of my friends that didn't have their breasts done. Best wishes :)
