    Default Why can't I find info on this?

    With my long and ongoing battle to find answers about why I can't breastfeed my kids. I remembered hearing someone mention that women who's breasts don't grow during/after pregnancy have problems producing enough milk.

    I don't know if this is given fact info but it is in part my case...not enough milk, no change in size.

    I found one article that mentions it, but I tried all the techniques they list. I can't find anything else about it. Anyone have info?

    I heard the same thing...but have no written proof to back up. first thing I was asked was how much did my cup size increase.

    there is a condition where some women don't have enough fat cells in there breasts to produce milk I forget what its called but it can't be diagnosed untill you actually try to breast feed. you could ask kendra I was talking to her about it a while ago

    Mine haven't grown from before kids to now. Even in the newly bfing engorged stage I still fit in the same sized bra. Now maybe I am an exception to the rule??

    I remember reading a post on here from a mom who was diagnosed with haven low prolactin (I think that's the right hormone, but I'm not 100% sure) levels, and who couldn't exclusively bf her kids as a consequence.
    My boobs hardly changed during pregnancy but got huge when my milk came in.

    Mine haven't really changed much either, a cup size at most and I'm still bfing at 7 months.
