Is it possible to breastfeed with breast implants? Anyone had any success/problems with this?

Hi nilequeen.

No experience myself but you might find this site useful.

Yes, my friend's sister has and has not had any problems as far as I know - her baby is now five months old.

I have had two breast augmentation surgeries and breastfed both prior to any surgery, between the two surgeries and since the second surgery. I didn't breastfeed for very long with my previous DC, but that was due to lack of support/information on BF in general, not to do with the implants. I am now BF DC6 and although she is only 17 days old today, it's going brilliantly and we are absolutely in it for the 'long haul' this time. (I plan to feed for a year, but will see how it goes)

I bf DC3 after I had my implants done without any problems, and I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and will bf again, hopefully for 1 year.
