    Default Boobie question for moms who have weaned

    Is it true that fat redeposits into your breasts? Or are they floppy and sad forever?

    fat redeposits?...not in my case lol... gravity takes over as you age. To be honest I don't find mine to be floppy or sad. Sure they look a bit different as to be expected but nothing to loose sleep over. I think there are some chest exercises to perk them up or something...but I just don't care, doesn't concern me!

    When I weaned they got sad and saggy for like 6 weeks (and looked like floppy pancakes) and then plumped back up again (both kids). Now I will say, gravity has had an effect. They aren't the boobs I had at 20 but I'm not self conscious of them or anything.

    Mine are definitely floppier then they used to be...
    But either I'm just getting used to it, or they actually are better than they were when I first stopped bfing. Floppy, yes, but not as ​floppy.

    Not likely. Mine are okay. Not the same, but alright. Bras become your wonder drug. Or get pregnant again, then they fill right back up!

    I have breastfed 2 and they are definitely not the same as before, but not flat pancakes. They are saggier and softer for sure.

    Now I remember wanting a Boob job after weaning DD. DH's plan is for me to pump forever, I don't think that will happen.

    I have no plans to wean anytime soon, just wondered if the rumors were true. Looks not.

    this has been my solution. Hey I may be crabby and hormonal and have reactive hypoglycemia and low iron stores, but I've had 6.5 years of fantastic breasts!

    I had one month in there where I wasn't breastfeeding or pregnant and my breasts were so very sad. There was nothing there. But the nothing was like 2 inches below where I left it! Like a cherry in an itty bitty baby tube sock. It was a bad scene. lol. I'm going to have to breastfeed this last baby forever. Or else invest in a nice padded bra
