Sorry, but I really dislike it when you come and perve in the breastfeeding threads. It's gross and immature.

You would show up on a thread about breasts - even if it's a BREASTFEEDING thread

And it is a very good reason to continue to breast feed. My mother in law did not breastfeed Mr. X or her daughters. She is a breast cancer survivor. When she saw I chose to breastfeed she told me that she is glad that I did because if breastfeeding is a possible breast cancer preventative then its best that I do to be around for my children.

BTW I do understand OhioChic's plight especially if one is working.

The engorgement did hurt me a lot, but that was mostly when my milk came in and my babies had a tough time getting started. Like a little dog and beach ball, good grief. My poor boobs! Ugh, I will never forget sitting there, crying in pain and misery. But the weaning shouldn't be bad. If you quit cold turkey, then you'll probably engorge, and that hurts. But if the demand just decreases gradually, your body will produce less and less accordingly. I think that's what happened with nursing my babies. Breastfeeding was frustrating and difficult, so they didn't empty my milk ducts (and I didn't push them to, as I perhaps could have), and soon I wasn't producing enough.

And no, they'll never be the same. The tissues inside are just different. A mom's breasts won't necessarily be saggy and floppy, but something definitely happens. It's just the way of things.

From what I'm reading in the interwebs, one must breast feed for 2 or more years to see a reduced cancer risk. I guess that leaves me out.

I weened my babies one feeding at a time. If it is painful, pump just a little to relieve the pain, but not so much that your body is prompted to make more.

No, they will never look the way they used to.

Yep, but that doesn't all have to be for one child. If a mother has 2 children and breastfeeds each one for a year her risk will go down slightly. Nursing for 6 years reduces the risk by 63% according to sources I've seen.

OK, I better go have about 5 more kids, then!
