Question

“In two days I am 37 weeks, and my breasts have hardly increased in size, maybe a half a cup size. A quick Internet search made it seem like breast size usually starts to increase during the first 6-8 weeks of pregnancy and continues throughout, but this is definitely not my case.  I’m wondering, do smaller breast sizes have any negative impact on ability to produce sufficient milk for baby? Do breasts normally get larger right before baby is born? I am very much hoping/looking forward to breastfeeding my baby, and I just want to make sure this isn’t an early indicator or an inability to/or difficulty with milk production/breastfeeding. Also is there anything I should be/could be doing to help increase breast size/milk production at this stage? And do eating/drinking lactation cookies/smoothies help with milk production?” – Christine
