If you aren't overly saggy after the birth then you probably have a good chance of keeping them ok. Mine were wrecked by your stage.
I don't think it's shallow at all. Just normal
Thanks delirium 😘
In terms of whether you continue breastfeeding or decide to mix feed or formula feed full time, that's your decision and your bub will have a happy, full tummy which ever way you feed her. I know personally, it took 6-8 weeks for my boobs to settle with each baby and then the engorgement and leaking and massive letdown eased a lot.
Every day I say right I'll start the process today then I just can't do it. I look at her and feel bad for taking the only thing she loves right now - my nipples
Ok I'll keep at it until my 6 week app and see where my instincts are then.
Thanks for the support all.
Stretched can I pm you on how to mix feed? I don't want this section to throw me out for discussion something OT.
My first I swore I was only feeding until 3 months max, then no longer than 6 months, then I'd stop if she had allergies....she had several! I stopped at 14 months, pregnant with my second
I never hated bf'ing again until my third. From 6 months to 12 months I HATED feeding him. I was so touched out with three under four and just wanted my body to be mine. The only thing that stopped me was that I felt bad stopping when I didn't stop for his older siblings. From 12 months on I loved it again but those 6 months were hard.
As for your issues, my boobs only got big with my first...I made sure I exercised with a supportive bra, and wore breast pads for the first three months. Breastfeeding didn't impact my exercise because things seriously settled down after the first 6 weeks, enabling me to work out again.
Overall I bf for 4 1/2 years. My boobs aren't saggy. They aren't quite as perky as they were before I had three babies but it's not like I have to stuff them in to my bra or anything.
The decision is yours, but if you're finding it too difficult to give up now give yourself small goals and reassess at each small goal. So it feels too hard to give up now, see how you feel when she's 6 weeks old.
Also google purple crying, it's an interesting concept
