Heard the warning that breastfeeding will change your boobs forever and decided you don't want to take that chance? You might want to listen to what Snooki has to say first. Yes, THAT Snooki.
Nicole Polizzi may not be who most moms first think of when it comes to parenting advice, but the Jersey Shore star has come a long way since her son came into the world last fall -- if nothing else, she's learned from experience. And according to her experience, even nursing alternatives will harm the girls.
See, Snooki has been more than open about the fact that she has breastfed little Lorenzo the "hard way," pumping her milk so her little guy can drink it straight out of a bottle. It's not nursing in a traditional sense, but it still affected her breasts.
Talking about the effect motherhood has had on her body, Snooki recently said her tummy is getting more toned -- she expects crunches will help with the remaining flappy skin issues -- but there is one body part she'd like to get some help with:
If I were to get any surgery -- I've never been under the knife before, so it's very terrifying -- I do want to get my boobs done eventually. Now they're just a flap of skin.
I hear you Snooki!
I tried -- and ultimately failed -- at breastfeeding myself, and I experienced a major change in my breasts too. It's merely anecdotal, but from my experience, it seems like it was pregnancy that changed them ... not breastfeeding itself. If I hadn't tried at all, here's betting they'd still be uneven (which is what happened to me post-baby).
So much for protecting your boobs by not breastfeeding, huh?
Did you consider not breastfeeding because of what it could do to your body? What did you decide in the end?
