Here, we look at the trials of post-breastfeeding bra-shopping. Sometimes I think about the amount of time I've spent contemplating boobs and I feel that I have a pretty good grasp on what it must be like to be an adolescent boy.

Breastfeeding , also known as nursing , is the feeding of babies and young children with milk from a woman's breast. Deaths of an estimated , children under the age of five could be prevented globally every year with increased breastfeeding. Benefits for the mother include less blood loss following delivery, better uterus shrinkage, and decreased postpartum depression. Health organizations, including the World Health Organization WHO , recommend breastfeeding exclusively for six months.
Your nursing breasts may feel lumpy at times. These are most likely plugged milk ducts. A lump that does not get smaller or go away after about a week should be checked by your doctor. If your doctor needs to perform any tests to diagnose the lump, you should not have to stop breastfeeding.
