Breastfeeding: Is there a correlation between breast size and milk production??
Is there a correlation between breast size and milk output? Do large breasts produce more milk than small ones?Question:
In this case, size doesn't matter. Larger breasts have a higher proportion of fatty tissue, compared to glandular tissue, but this has no effect on the amount of milk you are able to produce.
Women with very small breasts may worry that they will not be able to nurse their baby, but it is very rare to be born with insufficient glandular tissue. Frankly, women with small breasts may find they have fewer difficulties breastfeeding than nursing moms with larger breasts. Proper positioning may present special challenges for a large breasted nursing mom. Finally, small chests are an asset!
