Can We Talk About Boobs?

Disclaimer: Dad, you might not want to read this :)

OK, let me start off by saying that I absolutely LOVE breastfeeding my son. I wouldn't have it any other way. I believe its totally natural and beautiful and it creates an amazing bond between my son and I.

That being said.

Double you. Tee. Eff.

I look like an 85 yr old woman. Well, at least from the neck down.

I'm talking about my boobs. They are soooo saggy. And when they are empty, right after Cruz has nursed, forget it, its basically just loose skin pooling at the bottom of bra.

Lovely, I know.

For the sake of the argument, I have to give examples.

Due to the fact that I dont want to smear the internet (or you poor, unsuspecting bystanders) with images of my breast (not that I have any) I will use this picture as reference for my "before."

I was 19 in this picture (on the left) and, for the most part, pretty average in the chestal region for a girl of that age (ignore the classy, frat-house decor)

Just 2 short years later...

SAGGY BAGGY ELEPHANT!!!!! (Please excuse the minor adjustments made to Papa's face).

Will they ever go back to normal???
Will I be a sagging, 85 year old look-a-like for the rest of my life.
I'm only 21, I deserved to get a little bit more mileage out of the "perkiness" factor.

For real, do they ever go back? Or do I get to keep these gifts from my son (as if the stretch marks weren't gift enough) for the rest of my life?

Maybe I'll meet a guy with a sagging, stretch mark fetish. No?

Ahh, the sacrifices joys of motherhood. Thank you, my son, for all the incredible ways for which you have changed my life.


  1. I didn't know that you were 21 as well! We have a lot in common. I can definitely relate to you in this issue. I breastfed both my sons for the first year, and it was totally worth it, but I do face this same issue. Its frustrating. We have to give up our bodies for nine months to carry the child, then nurse the child...and even when we are done the reminder is still there that we will never look like we did before. =D Oh well, maybe is some sort of blessing in disguise. A very good disguise. =D

  2. Also, I love the edited photo. Very nice touch. =D

  3. If there was an "amen" button on blogger I'd hit it 75 times for this post. I don't breastfeed anymore, Violet is 15 months old but after it was all said and done I went from a D to an itty bitty A. and yes even A's can sag.

  4. Hi Cassie, thanks for visiting my blog! I'm so glad you did because now I've found you too. You are hilarious! I'm sorry to report but I think the saggies are permanent. They may go back a little bit but the great boobs from pre-baby are gone. :( I never thought I would want plastic surgery but after nursing 2 babies, I'm starting to save my $!

  5. My partner and I really enjoyed reading this blog post, I was just itching to know do you trade featured posts? I am always trying to find someone to make trades with and merely thought I would ask.
