Breast Feel Flabby In Nursing Mothers, Is It Normal?
Hello doctor r nSy new mom, my baby is only 2 weeks old. My breasts, thank God, it came out even though it didn’t spurt, but why is it that the breasts are always soft / not hard even though I have eaten and have not been breastfed / milked even though the breast is only dripping dripping? Meanwhile, people around me and my breastfeeding are empty because they are soft r nPlease help, thank you
Hello Asrizink, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Full breasts can be characterized by breasts that feel a little hard, however hard on full breasts does not mean you can feel your breasts to become rock hard. Breasts can become rock hard and painful if you have blockage in your breast or an infection in the breast (mastitis). Breasts that do not feel hard also do not mean your milk is empty, because it is evident that when you are breastfeeding, milk can still drip from the other breast. A woman whose milk does not drip from the breast does not mean that her milk production cannot meet the needs of her baby. The condition of each woman's breasts is different, including the capacity of breast milk. Breast size also does not determine the production capacity and capacity of breast milk.
Therefore, you don't need to worry if your breasts don't harden. This indicates that you are emptying your breasts well before they have become very full and this is a good thing. By frequently emptying the breasts, milk production will increase according to your baby's needs.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
