Does Breast Size Matter?

Bigger is not always better when it comes to breastfeeding. It’s not true that your breast size dictates the amount of milk that your body will produce.

Fatty tissues determine the size of a woman’s breast. But these tissues do not help in producing breast milk, nor the quality of it.

After giving birth, hormones stimulate the mammary glands in the breasts to push the milk into the ducts. Once the baby latches and sucks, that’s the time that the milk is secreted out of the ducts. Milk supply is determined by how much your baby nurses. The more baby feeds, the more milk you make.
