No it can't. Its actually recommended that as your breasts grow and while breast feeding to sleep in a bra to decrease the chance of getting stretch marks on your breasts and for comfort. They sell nursing bras specifically for sleeping in.
May have to look into the ones that are meant for sleeping! Thank you! :)
I slept in a sports bra almost all through my pregnancy, I still have a ton of stretch marks on them so that's a myth but my milk supply is fine, my baby is 3 weeks
Did anyone have any problems with these milk going away an if so what were the signs? I'm so afraid my is slowly going away an idk what to do!!! My breasts are slowly getting softer and when I squeeze milk doesn't come out or is just a little bit an she seems to be nursing a little more often!!!!!
Your body has probably just adjusted to how much milk your baby needs. If your worried about your production nursing more frequently ans pumping in between, even if you get nothing, will help to increase your supply. Also make sure you are drinking plenty of water.
Maymommy as far as getting stretch marks even though you wore a bra every women varies and some people are going to get them no matter what you do. Unfortunately I'm one of them and have stretch marks everywhere. My skin just has poor elasticity.
Thank you for your help!!! My lactation nurse told Me not to start pumping until baby is 4 wks? Do you know why that is an should I start sooner
actually if its tight it can affect your supply..so make sure it's fitting and not squeezing! i also would wait til about 4 weeks when your supply is well established to pump. the things you said, breasts not feeling as full, can't easily express milk, etc. is signs of a growth spurt, baby may eat constantly, act fussy like he/she isn't getting enough, is also signs.. keep with breastfeeding and don't supplement with formula, your body will catch up with the demands your baby needs and it will pass.
Thank you ktowne that's what I read it could be a growth spurt I def don't want to use any formula was just concerned about my milk supply an didn'tknow if iI should contact my ob or if it was normal is there anything I can do/ take to increase to make sure I have enough?
fenugreek!! its an all natural supplement used for decades. no side effects for mom or baby, can be bought at any pharmacy! i love it for growth spurts!
I personally start pumping around 2 1/2 weeks. I would nurse her first and then pump after she finished. It helped to increase my supply. Now I wouldn't pump instead of nursing too early on because that could negatively affect your supply.
Thanks ladies for all your advice!!
