But there's no correlation between breast size and milk supply as a large breasted woman does not have more milk ducts but rather more fatty tissue. And this does not affect the amount of milk you can produce. Big and small breasts have about the same milk producing apparatus.
Correspondingly, how many milk ducts are in a woman's breast?
A healthy female breast is made up of 12–20 sections called lobes. Each of these lobes is made up of many smaller lobules, the gland that produces milk in nursing women. Both the lobes and lobules are connected by milk ducts, which act as stems or tubes to carry the milk to the nipple.
Where are the milk ducts in the breast?
The lobules are the glands that produce the breast milk. The ducts are tubes or channels which transport the milk from these glands out to the nipple. The nipple becomes erect because of cold, breast feeding and sexual activity. The pigmented area around the nipple is called the areola.
What does a milk duct feel like?
If you're making breast milk faster than it's getting expressed, it can get backed up in the duct. a small, hard lump that's sore to the touch or a very tender spot in your breast. redness. a hot sensation or swelling that may feel better after nursing.
