Are YOU Afraid To Breast Feed?

It’s a known fact that having kids changes our breasts.  They get saggy and droopy.  Unfortunately, it happens and we pretty much all know that.  
But what causes these saggy breasts?  Is it the pregnancy or is it breast feeding?  I’ve recently learned that a lot women are unclear of this.
Let’s set the record straight.  It’s not breast feeding that causes breasts to sag.  Changes happen to our breasts during the actual pregnancy that causes this.  So wether you breast feed or not, unfortunately, you will notice your breasts losing their youthfulness.  
It’s just one of the prices we pay to bring wonderful children into the world!
I read a recent study by and here are the findings that I found interesting:
  • One third of young women have decided not to breast feed their babies because they do not want to "ruin the look" of their breasts.
  • Some 49% of the 18 to 25-year-olds questioned by said they did not plan to breast feed, with 32% citing vanity as their main reason.
  • Of these, more than half were worried that their partner would find them less attractive, while a quarter were concerned about losing their body confidence.
I wish all these ladies understood that it is NOT breast feeding that is going to “ruin the look” of their breasts.  I wish they understood the many benefits associated with breast feeding.  Mother’s milk is incredible healthy for baby.  Also, breast feeding actually helps ladies return to their pre-pregnancy body faster.
These ladies are more concerned with their own bodies than their baby’s health.  Or perhaps they just don’t realize the truth.  
I think we need to help educate ladies that breast feeding is a good thing, and should be seen that way - not as something that is going to negatively affect mother’s bodies.
I have a suggestion to all those ladies who are so concerned about their breasts losing their perkiness and getting saggy ...
Enjoy your pregnancy and how your body changes.  Enjoy the added health benefits to your baby ... and the bonding with your child ... that comes with breast feeding.  Enjoy it all!  Having a baby is such a wonderful gift.  Being a mom is a blessing.  Truly enjoy the experience.

Lifting Sagging Breasts: Defy Gravity With These Sure-Fire Tips To Lift Saggy Breasts!

Let's face it ladies - Saggy boobs happen to the best of us! We wish we could keep our youthful, perky breasts ... but it doesn't always work out that way.
Is it possible to defy the laws of nature and gravity?
Lifting Sagging Breasts?  Yes - It IS possible!

What Causes Saggy Breasts? 
Before we learn how to repair saggy breasts, let's get clear on what causes them ...
Our breasts are under constant stretch due to the effects of gravity. Sagging happens when our Cooper's Ligaments, (the ligaments that suspend and support the breast) get stretched and the skin around the breast loosens. Gravity, and the weight of the breast, over time can sure take their toll!
It is commonly known that pregnancy leads to many changes in the breasts. Here's why: During pregnancy, 2 hormones are secreted by the ovaries and the placenta. These 2 hormones are estrogen & progesterone, and they stimulate the development of 15-20 lobes of milk-secreting glands. These glands are embedded in the breast's fatty tissue. These changes are permanent. The glands remain empty in the breast, even after they are no longer needed to produce milk, adding extra weight and making the breasts sag.
Unlike during pregnancy, during menopause there is a lack of the hormone estrogen. This affects all body tissues, especially breast tissue. This lack of estrogen reduces the size and fullness of the breast. Also, because there is no estrogen, collagen levels decrease. Collagen is a fibrous protein found in the connective tissue of the breast. Collagen needs estrogen to stay heathy. Without estrogen, it becomes dehydrated and loses its elasticity. This causes the saggy breasts.
Many people also believe genetics plays a role in breast size and saggy-ness, but this many not be entirely true. It may be more of people's perceptions of what their genetics should be that causes saggy breasts.
How Can We Defy Nature & Gravity? 
Now that we know what causes breast sagging, let's talk about what we can to lift our saggy breasts.
Sagging is going to happen. But we don't have to just accept that! We can take charge and do something about it! Here are some suggestions to help slow down and fix the sagging:
If you go without support on a regular basis, gravity is working against you. By simply wearing a bra, you'll be greatly helping your breasts from sagging.
Also, consider getting an assortment of bras for different activities. For example, if you're exercising, it is recommended to wear a very supportive sports bra. This will keep the girls in place while you're actively moving around. With a strong, supportive, sports bra, you can wrestle with gravity ... and WIN!!
On the other hand, if you're not exercising, perhaps consider a push-up bra. These bras have extra padding on the outside and bottom of each cup, lifting the breasts up and in.
PRO: This is a huge help in reducing the affects of gravity
CON: This is only helpful when your clothes are on. Take it all off, and you've still got the same saggy breasts.
While some women believe these types of exercises reduce breast mass, when done moderately, they can firm up the bust-line and reduce sagging. Push ups, dumbbell flies, and chest presses all strengthen the pectoral muscles, which are found underneath the breasts. Do these exercises 3 times a week to tone up.
PRO: This is exercise, and exercise is always good for you and your overall health.
CON: Doing these exercises may not actually bring you the results you want, plus, if you stop exercising, your muscles will return to the way they were, and the sag will come back.%u2028
Will this in itself keep your breasts for sagging, or even help to lift them? No, it will not. But drinking lots of water is very healthy, and to help eliminate sagging it is hugely important to stay hydrated. So keep the bottle of water nearby!
PRO: Same as the point above, this is just a really good thing to do for your overall health! Water is the best thing for you!
CON: Drinking water is great at keeping the elasticity of the skin, but using this by itself is not going to lift sagging breasts.
Moisturize your breasts twice a day to help keep and rebuild elasticity. And while you're moisturizing, you can even try massage treatments. Advocated of gentle, non-erotic breast massage believe it gets rid of wastes from the tissues and increases blood flow. Therefore, this should help to tone and enhance the shape of the breast.
What should you use to moisturize? You have choices. Even just a regular body lotion will help to keep the skin hydrated and elastic. There are also creams designed especially for firming and tightening the skin. You are welcome to try one of these if you choose.
PRO: A combination of the right product, with dedicating time each and every day, can produce dramatic results.
CON: Be very careful what products you buy into. Make sure you research them thoroughly, as there are some products that are a little more questionable than others. Use our friend 'Google' and do your research. Read reviews of what other ladies have to say, and only buy into the products that have a proven track record.
The practice of using mind power for lifting sagging breasts is not new. Studies have been conducted since the 1960s demonstrating the relationship between mind power and breast physiology. The research demonstrates that breast size, shape and fullness can be dramatically transformed by harnessing the power of one's mind.
Guided visualizations, through downloaded audio programs, help ladies focus on creating the breasts they desire. When in a relaxed state, usually just before bed, participants are encouraged to listen to an audio, focus on what is being said, and visualize themselves with their desired breasts.
This method may sound farfetched to some, as it has not yet hit the mainstream, but it is slowly creeping in. Many ladies are giving it a try, and having great success.
PRO: This is a proven method that work on even more than just sagging breasts. It also improves self esteem and aids with weight loss. There are many benefits to this method.
CON: This will only work if you are open to the possibility that it just might help you. If you can believe it, you will achieve it.

In Conclusion...

In conclusion, from one woman to another, saggy breasts happen.  It's OK if your breasts are starting to head south.  It's totally normal.  But you don't have to live with saggy breasts forever!  Try the suggested methods listed above and find the one that's right for you.

Lifting Sagging Breasts: The 3 Biggest Mistakes All New Moms Should Avoid!

Being a new mom is an exciting adventure!  There are many wonderful new things to learn: 
    • How to change diapers!
    • How to give little baby a tub!
    • How to do your grocery shopping that much faster so you might be able to get in and out while baby is still sleeping!  
And while you’re learning all these wonderful new things, you’re also trying to figure out how to be the best possible mom you can.  
The one thing you shouldn’t have to worry about is lifting your sagging breasts!
It’s a known fact that having kids changes many things.  Pregnancy unfortunately can be very cruel to our breasts.  To help, here is a summary of the 3 biggest mistakes that all new moms should avoid.
Mistake #1 - Avoid breast feeding for fear of sagging breasts! 
Reality - It is NOT breast feeding that causes sagging breasts - it is in fact the pregnancy.  A recent study proves that breast feeding does not effect breast size or shape.  Click to read the study on The Effect Of Breast Feeding On Breast Esthetics.
In another study, it was found that more than 1/3 of women are choosing not to breast feed because they don’t want to ‘ruin the look of their breasts’.  We need to come together to educate these women on the changes that happen in our bodies during pregnancy - what causes them and why.  
Bottom line -  Breast feed!  There are so many benefits for both mommy and baby when you breast feed.  And don’t worry ... you won’t be doing any harm to your breasts.     
So wether you breast feed or not, if you get pregnant, you will get saggy breasts.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s true.  But I also have some good news!  And that leads me into mistake #2 ... 
Mistake #2 - You’re Stuck With Them!  
Reality - No - you’re not stuck with saggy breasts.  You don’t have to live with your post-pregnancy breasts forever.  You can do something about it.  You can fight with gravity and rejuvenate ‘the girls’.  Consider getting a breast lift and even a breast reduction.  
Mistake #3 - Going Under The Knife Is The Only Option!  
Reality - Do not just jump into surgery - there ARE other options.  There are pills, creams, pumps, exercises, and massage techniques that claim to help with lifting sagging breasts.  But a word of caution - Be sure to research them fully.  Not all these products are actually proven to work.  
Spend some time with our good friend Google, and learn about the different options.  Pick the one that is best for you, and makes sense.  Find a method that has a proven track record, and a money back guarantee.
So to sum up ... Don’t fall into these 3 mistakes for lifting sagging breasts like so many other new moms do.  You can have beautiful kids, AND beautiful breasts at the same time.  Just take the time to do your research, find a solution that you feel will work for you, and commit to following it through.
