Many mothers are afraid that after breastfeeding, they will find that their breasts are sagging and not as full and erect as before. So what is the cause of sagging breasts? Is there any way to alleviate it?
Breast sagging after breastfeeding is actually related to female hormones, pregnancy and breastfeeding. Women’s breasts are composed of fat, glands, ducts and a small amount of fibers and skin. During pregnancy and lactation, the breasts are fuller than before. After weaning, the breasts will become dry and begin to droop.

Some new mothers don’t wear underwear for breastfeeding convenience, which is very undesirable. Breast-feeding women become bigger, and if they don’t wear underwear to gather and shape, they are more likely to sag. You can buy special breast-feeding underwear during breast-feeding, which can not only nurse babies, but also protect breasts.

Breastfeeding not only does not affect the mother’s body shape, but also consumes the energy accumulated during pregnancy and promotes the recovery of the mother’s postpartum body. Proper breastfeeding can prevent the further aggravation of sagging breasts, which is beneficial to prevent the occurrence of nipple diseases. Don’t let your child eat milk lightly when breastfeeding. Massage your breasts every time after breastfeeding, and bathe your breasts with warm water twice a day. This will not only be beneficial to the cleanliness of your breasts, but also prevent them from sagging.

Eat more foods rich in vitamin E, such as carrots.
4. Keep exercising
Exercise can enlarge the pectoralis major muscle and provide a little support for the chest, and regular exercise can keep the skin elastic and improve the chest skin that has become loose due to breastfeeding.
