    I havent read all the replies but I just read the article linked here and one thing stood out

    "If your baby falls asleep on your lap and you want to put him into a cot, you can stand up, place baby still attached into bed, wait another minute whilst still leaning over the cot to allow baby to settle again, detach baby, and off you go!"

    This is so true! I do this all the time as I am a FF....one advantage of the bigger boob....it really does hang down!

    I've been known to do that too, only it's a LOT harder when you're only a D cup

    As for the OP, there is no such thing as breasts too large to breastfeed with, but it can make getting bub to latch a little more difficult and finding a comfy position to feed in can be a little harder.

    There are products on the market such as the Booby Booster to help ease things a little

    I don't have huge breasts, but several of my friends do and 2 out of 3 of them have successfully breastfed for over 6 months.

    I fed for 20 months as a 16I. I never had any cracked nipples or mastitis (I did have 1 major problem, but that was related to an accessory nipple....but that is another long and ridiculous story).

    My keys to success were
    • Shaping up the nipple/breast with the c-hold (see the ABA article that a PP posted)
    • Good lumbar support
    • A good, sturdy breastfeeding pillow (mine was a boppy, we used it the whole time) and
    • not being afraid to ask for help.
    I had been worried that I would have troubles because in addition to big boobs, I don't have particularly prominent or protrusive nipples but it was never a problem.

    Same spg, my nipples are flattish too. But DS feeds fine. We did have a bit of problem with attachment at the beginning and I had cracks on one nipple but after a few weeks we had the hang of it.
