It is possible to restore your milk production. Most women who have been pregnant will be able to feed a baby. Milk is produced in response to the baby's sucking. The baby will have to nurse at each breast several times a day in order to stimulate the milk glands to produce. This can take several days, maybe longer. It can be difficult for two reasons. 1) The breasts will be empty, so the baby won't get anything until the milk glands start working. You can get a small bag with a thin tube attached, so you can put formula in the bag, and lay the tube next to your nipple so that the baby still gets fed. This has been used successfully by adoptive mothers. You can also use a breast pump. 2) The baby may resist the change. It is a lot harder to get milk out of a breast than out of a bottle, and the baby may not want to have to work so hard, especially if she has been used to a bottle since birth. If you can get your milk started, but the baby doesn't like to nurse, you may have to pump and use bottles. Contact your local La Leche League for more information.

How to get bigger breast after breast feeding?

I'll assume you mean that you have stopped breastfeeding and you milk has dried up but that you want you breasts look full or large as they were when you milk was in. I suggest you simply bring your milk back. There are several options that would do this for you. Having your significant other suckle your breasts are the best option. Another is the Marmet Technique and finally there is always the old pump method. However if you are sick of leakage, sore nipples and breastfeeding bras and don't want to continue then sadly the only other way is through surgery unless you are happy with stuffing the bra.

How do you know when you start to develop breast milk?

Most often, you will find a slight caking on the nipple. It almost looks like dandruff. The breast might leak a tiny amount of a clear liquid, or even darker fluid. The caking is the leakage that has dried. The breast will become fuller, and sometimes sore. But the usual signs are that the nipple will "leak". This can also happen with non pregnant women who have a different hormonal make up.
