Selfish Reason to Breastfeed #4

March 22, 2017

 

 

 

Nice Breasts

 

People pay thousands of dollars and suffer through as many hours of pain and recovery to be happy with their bodies. Whether it’s under a bench press or under anesthesia, women put a lot of work in to remain comfortable in their own skin. So it seems logical not to let an eight pound baby hang from you like a ripe coconut. Right?

 

A common breastfeeding misnomer is that breastfeeding causes sagging breast or breast ptosis. It is well documented that this is NOT true. Sagging breasts are caused by stretching of the ligaments. Pregnancy, smoking, high body mass index, and age are the main culprits to ptosis, NOT breastfeeding. In fact, there is a study that takes it one step further asserting that women who breastfeed have larger areolas but improved breast skin when compared to their non-breastfeeding peers. It is believed by many Lactation Consultants that breastfeeding reduces sagging breast because breastfeeding mothers are less likely to experience engorgement postpartum which can wreak havoc on breast.

 

Moral of the story, breastfeeding makes for prettier breasts. So remember this when you are at home in stained sweat pants, disheveled hair, and just praying to get a shower in that day. Soon you will be able to get out of the house and have some fun. When they complement your figure you can tell everyone you got work done by Dr. Latch.
