The Bump Expert

Probably not. It's normal for your breasts to "soften up" once breastfeeding is established. This definitely doesn't mean your milk is going away; your body is just settling into your breastfeeding routine by no longer overproducing milk. As long as baby is gaining weight and is content, there's nothing to worry about.
