what happens to our boobs?

Breast feeding vs formula ups and downs? Would my boobs look nasty like some women say I'm 11 weeks and my bra size is 34 D

In my opinion, your nips look gross right after the baby feeds. But within 30 minutes they look normal again.

Other than that, your boobs in general may or may not look the same regardless of if you breastfeed or not. With my first, I was a 34b prepregnancy, went up to a 34c, and then attempted to breastfeed/pump. It didn't work out, and after my milk dried up I went down to a 34a. They weren't saggy, but they also didn't look as perky to me once they were smaller.

Your boobs will get way bigger for sure but breastfeeding is amazing! I have breastfed 3 boys and will do so with this lo too. My boobs went back to normal size once baby weaned. It reduces your risk of breast cancer along with helps you drop the pregnancy weight. Formula and bottles are not bad but I did find that people I knew that formula fed were always late and forgetting the bottle or taking so much time to make bottles for baby breastfeeding is so much simpler Boob out, baby on all done Lol no clean up either. There are several great breastfeeding books out there that really cover the good bad and ugly lol

I'm curious to know what our boobs look like after breastfeeding too. Mine haven't grown much I'm 34 weeks and I haven't leaked any colostrum so I'm not certain if I'll be able to breastfeed but I sure want to.

Thanks lady's I wanna do breast feeds but I don't want my babysfather to not like my boobs even if it was because I had his baby and feed his baby

My chest balls went from a 30b pre pregnancy to a 30ff during breastfeeding and then back down to a 30d after my baby was done. I got a lot of stretch marks but that's really a genetic thing and they were much saggier after. But my husband loves them either way. It's an amazing thing to be able to do for your baby if you can.

I am also worried how my boobs will look after my husband wants me too but I think it's up to me also not just him I want him to still be attracted to my chest after everything is said and done really worried on how I'll look after the baby is born or how he will look at me ....

Ladies be calm your breast will still look attractive.  Some women look even more attractive than before getting pregnant. I have 3 boys and breastfed 2 until they were 1. My breast still look good in a push up bra. They look fuller and more attractive to my husband. Just keep in mind to breastfeed both boobs equally so that one does not get smaller than the other. Othet than that ya good. Gl

I pumped for 7 months after my son was born. I couldn't breastfeed cuz he was really premature but honestly my boobs look great! I'm not even kidding my best friend who has no children always comments on how great they look, my husband still loves them very much! I have them and dammit I flaunt them too! I plan on breastfeeding with this baby if I can and if she has trouble then I'm pumping again! Breastmilk is the healthiest for u and baby. Honestly I have 2 friends that didn't breastfeed and there boobs r saggier then mine.

I think it's pretty genetic. I read an article that described all the changes boobs go through during pregnancy and it said pregnancy is the main reason for any later changes in appearance, not breastfeeding, as while you're pregnant, a lot of breast tissue turns into mammary glands. So when all the hormones subside, they often deflate a little, because the mammary parts that aren't in use are not always as full and plump looking as the original tissue. (so if anything is going to happen to change your boobs appearance, I'm sorry to say it's probably already happening!)
