After pumping boobs
After stopping pumping of milk, the boobs are still huge but saggy looking. Is this normal? Will it go back to more firm?
My shape is okay but the areola become bigger 😣
It won't go back to normal anymore. How you maintained huge boob my like deflated so upset.
- Hi, after pumping my boobs feel soft but there are white spots on my nipples which milk dun come out from. They are not painful to touch but my supply has dropped. Is this clogged ducts?
Yes. milk blisters will be very painful. Maybe you can try gently rub with warm/hot wet compress before feedings or pumping. If it’s still doesn’t work. I would suggest go to doc and double check. If it is milk blisters, they will use sterile needle.Anonymous
- hi mummies I'm a ep mom and i noticed my right boob is always feels more full than my left. pumping wise, they are about the same amount maybe differ about 5-10ml. and during my pump sessions, i notice my right will keep expressing out milk while the left after 4mins stops. is it normal?
Yepp each boob has a mind of their own! Haha for me my left is the drippy one, my right is more stable. You should probably extend your pump session a bit longer if your boob is still dripping afterwardsAnonymous
- i was latching on dd during my ML and boby started to sync with baby's feeding. after i go back to work and started pumping, my body seems no longer in sync with my baby's feeding. now she sometimes sleep thru the night yet my boobs are up for pumping in the middle of the night. any other mumies have similar issues? how do you resolve this?
What you are experiencing is normal. I had the same problem as you. As babies get bigger and their tummies can hold more milk hence their feeding hours stretches. Do you feel engored in the mid of the night?If you do, suggest you pump out the milk. I try to let baby sleep throughout the day so that my sleep is not disrupted. I will wake up earlier to pump and leave for work. Having enough rest helps in producing more milk.Chen Shihan
