When I found out I was pregnant, one of the first thoughts that crossed my mind (OK, maybe not the first, but definitely top ten) was that I'd finally have big boobs. Or bigger boobs, at least. Don't get me wrong, I personally prefer my borderline-B-cups to bigger sizes any day, but it was fun to imagine my dream of bigger boobs. Of course, not all women's boobs grow twice in size, so it's important to have some tips for breastfeeding with small boobs under your belt.
Although a growing bust is certainly one of the perks of breastfeeding, my boobs never got as big and I'd imaged and hoped. Sure, I went up a cup size. But for all intents and purposes, even after nursing two babies throughout three years, my boobs are still just about the size they were before I got pregnant. Bummer, I know. Over the years, I've come to appreciate the fact that I'm nursing my babies with smaller boobs. Because regardless of breast size, the fact that you're nourishing your baby with your own body, is pretty darn amazing.
These tips range from expert advice to my own personal experience, but they're all meant to encourage, educate, and help you nurse to the best of your ability.
