Many families know the importance of breast milk to babies. Without special circumstances, breastfeeding is basically selected.Breast milk is very important, but many expectant mothers have such trouble: "My breasts are not big, will the milk be not enough after the baby is born?"
Most people think that the amount of milk is more or less connected with the size of the breast, and the larger the breasts, the more milk is.In fact, this is just an imagination. The amount of milk has nothing to do with the size of the breast.Next I will explain the specific reasons and how to ensure the sufficient supply of milk.
The size of the breast has nothing to do with the amount of milk
In simple terms, breasts are mainly because the breasts are more fat, as if any other part (similar to the waist and hip) fat, there is no difference.However, the actual decision of milk is mainly the tissue of breast lobular tissue, glands and baby sucking stimuli. These are not inevitable to have the size of female breasts.
After pregnancy, due to the impact of hormones in the body, the breast gland gland and blisters will proliferate, making the breasts bigger, like a dough, and it is also for the baby to build the granary in advance. At the same timeThis is why many people say that pregnancy will make their breasts larger.Of course, this is not necessarily inevitable. If the fat deposits are relatively large, the breasts will become larger. If the breast deposits are small, the breasts may not change significantly, and there are individual differences.
After giving birth to a baby, the prolactin in your body will rise sharply, stimulating the breast blocked milk of the breast, and stored in the mammary gland tissue.Medical research shows that each woman’s breasts have dozens of breast lobular tissue and millions of breast glands.
