During breastfeeding, will you grow secondary breasts?

Introduction: Pregnancy has a great impact and change on the mother's body. Recently, I heard such a hot topic - "After pregnancy, I have an extra pair of breasts". As soon as this topic came out, it really shocked many people. However, behind this topic, another issue of the influence of pregnancy was revealed. It turns out that among the mother group, some women actually have the problem of auxiliary breast growth after pregnancy, and there are not a few. This makes many mothers who are pregnant feel afraid. During breastfeeding, will they really grow auxiliary breasts? What is the reason for this and how to deal with it? In our general concept, the concept of "auxiliary breasts" is often a small piece of extruded fat at the connection between the chest and the armpit, and this situation belongs to false auxiliary breasts. The growth position of the real auxiliary milk is similar to that of the false auxiliary milk, but it has certain breast tissue, and it will develop during lactation, and milk secretion will occur. In fact, the auxiliary milk already exists before breastfeeding, but it is not obvious because it is not affected by the lactation reflex. The mother's auxiliary milk is actually a pair of breast tissues that have not been completely degenerated. In mammals, most of them are breasts with breastfeeding function, but human beings have evolved to retain only a pair of breasts in the process of evolution. However, during the growth and development of the human body, due to genetic changes, other breast tissues may not completely degenerate. Usually there is no obvious manifestation. Once pregnancy or breastfeeding occurs, the stimulated breast tissue will develop here, and spontaneously provide the function of lactation and breastfeeding. In women's auxiliary breasts, the common types are: breast tissue with nipples, breast tissue with nipples, and breast tissue without nipples, and the growth parts may be bilateral or unilateral. Happening. Generally speaking, the first one will produce lactation during breastfeeding, and the second one will have the problem of bloating and pain due to internal milk production. In the face of the situation of the auxiliary breast, we mainly look at whether the situation is serious and obvious. If the tissue volume of the auxiliary milk is relatively small, it does not affect the normal behavior and aesthetics, and mothers can also do not need to deal with it. It will gradually subside to the pre-pregnancy size after half a year to a year after breastfeeding stops, but this does not mean It will disappear completely and will reappear in the next pregnancy and breastfeeding. For some serious cases, such as the excessive size of the auxiliary breast that affects the appearance, the appearance of a tumor in the auxiliary breast, and the presence of menstrual swelling and pain, then surgical resection can be considered. It should be noted that the only way to eliminate the auxiliary breast is surgical removal. Daily massage will not be effective, but will further stimulate the development of the auxiliary breast and cause adverse consequences. So, what should mothers do when they have side milk during breastfeeding? Is there any way to help relieve it? 1. Cold compress Faced with the swelling and pain of the auxiliary breast, pregnant mothers can usually relieve it by cold compress with a wet towel or an ice towel, which can have a temporary analgesic effect. Generally, the time of cold compress is controlled between 20 to 30 minutes, once or twice a day. 2. Avoid excessive squeezing and massage during breastfeeding. Do not squeeze and massage frequently, and do not do the operation of draining milk, which will stimulate the development of accessory milk instead. 3. When using Glauber's salt for external application, if the condition of lactation and swelling and pain is serious, then Glauber's salt can also be used for local external application of auxiliary milk, because Glauber's salt has a certain effect of returning milk, and it will help relieve the problem of swelling and pain after external application. But remember to use it in a small local area of ​​the auxiliary breast. Important note: The occurrence of accessory milk during lactation is a developmental growth problem caused by the lactation reflex of the non-degenerated breast tissue. Generally, it will return to the state of pregnancy after six months to one year of breastfeeding. In the face of the problem of auxiliary milk during breastfeeding, cold compresses can be used to relieve swelling and pain, to avoid excessive squeezing and massage stimulation, and external application of mirabilite can also be considered.
