Okay, so my friend and LC has assured me that breasts can seem smaller after babe is a couple of months old, but it does NOT mean reduction in supply (which I believe as my chunky monkey is now 20 pounds at 6 months<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">).<br><br>
However, I SWEAR that pre-Curran I was a B cup. Months 0-4 I was a large C (which was kinda exciting<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">). Now I think I may be a SMALL B, maybe even an A after a good nursing.<br><br>
Of course, they may just seem smaller because they are no longer perky -- whoever told me that nursing does not result in saggy bags was a BIG FAT LIAR!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/moon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="moon"><br><br>
Anybody else have disappearing boobies?

If you mean the kind where you pick them up and fold them into your bra then yes I have those. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My boobies are definitely not disappearing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ..Although I have friends that have experienced this. Not sure if they were actually smaller or if they just seemed that way b/c of the sagging.<br><br>
BTW, I think technically the sagging is caused by pregnancy, not breastfeeding. If it's any consolation.

me me me!! I did the b to c to a thing too!! But I have nursed 3 others and have done this every time so can tell you from experience it doesn't mean a lack of supply. I did find that during the time between my 6 yr old and this babe my breasts did "bounce back" some. I do envy women who get to keep thier nursing boobs though!!

I wish I had that problem! Pregnancy turned my D's to DD's, and nursing my 18 lb. 3 month old has me wearing an E cup. He has a favorite side lately, too, and that one doesn't fit in my bra! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
EDIT: He is 17lbs, not 18.<br><br>
And 3 years ago I was wearing a B! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao">

Yep, saggy, floppy... Like my Mom's? lol, sorry, bad mental picture.<br><br>
I don't think they've gotten smaller. During pregnancy they were bigger than now, but I think now they're probably around the same size as pre-preg, maybe 1/2 size bigger? (if that's possible)
