Breast Changes Before and After Baby

Will Your Breasts Ever Look the Same?

After you wean, your body absorbs remaining milk, your nipples return to their regular color, and breasts return to roughly their prepregnancy size. Although many women claim they're left with smaller or larger breasts, Dr. Mass says that this probably has more to do with postpregnancy weight than with the effects of pregnancy or nursing. Since the skin on your breasts has been stretched, however, you may notice stretch marks and -- sad but true -- the loose skin may make your breasts look more saggy.
