You should have waited till after you had your baby. You Breasts don't fully mature until after you are pregnant and then again after you had more kids. Then you should have decided whether or not you wanted a size change.

According to the FDA, you may not be able to breast feed after breast implantation. Some women who undergo breast augmentation can successfully breast feed and some cannot. Women who undergo a mastectomy will be unable to breast feed on the affected side due to loss of breast tissue and glands that produce milk. A study found that women with either silicone gel-filled or saline-filled breast implants showed lactation insufficiency (not enough milk) ranging from 28-64%. The periareolar approach (incision cite is around the nipple) was the factor most associated with lactation insufficiency. Speaking from personal experience, but I'm sure it depends on the individual, YES you can breast feed with breast implants. Mine are UNDER my muscle, I don't know if that makes a difference. You can breastfeed if you get the implant placed under the muscle. That's what I found through research.. I have saline implants "over" the muscle, and I am breastfeeding my 3 week old infant successfully so far! Good luck!

My sister in law breast fed with implants for three months just fine.
