What a difference a few years makes! The last time we saw Jenelle Evans with a baby, the Teen Mom 2 star was dumping little Jace on mom Barbara so she could get out and par-tay. But now that she's expecting baby number two with boyfriend Nathan Griffith, Jenelle is singing a different tune.
Taking a page out of co-star Kailyn Lowry's crunchy mama book, Jenelle says she's gung-ho to breastfeed! Yes Jenelle!!
But wait, didn't she have a boob job? Don't worry, she's thought about that already:
It's nice to hear the Teen Mom thinking about what's best for baby, isn't it? Turns out she's right too -- many women who have implants CAN breastfeed.

Note I said many, not all. Women who have undergone a mastectomy and breast reconstruction often cannot breastfeed because the glands that produce milk may have been removed. The biggest concern the La Leche League cites for any woman who has undergone breast surgery -- be it a reduction, augmentation, or a complete reconstruction -- is whether or not milk ducts and/or nerves were damaged in the process.
But some doctors estimate that as many as 90 percent of women who have gone the augmentation route will have no trouble breastfeeding because, as Jenelle said, the implant is placed under the muscle, which should prevent any interference between the glands and the nipple. If Jenelle -- or any mom -- is concerned, the best bet is to reach out to the original surgeon for details on how things went down.
Who knows if Jenelle will actually breastfeed or not. Girlfriend changes her mind every 10 minutes. But the fact that she's thinking about it is a good sign. Maybe Kailyn's influence is rubbing off on her?
Are you shocked by Jenelle's breastfeeding announcement?
