In the interests of full disclosure, one new mum has shared the harsh reality of breastfeeding.

Instagram user Chi Chi shared a split screen of her before and after breastfeeding – showing the dramatic difference in her breasts.

In the first image, Chi Chi’s breasts can be seen engorged, the blood vessels protruding through her skin. And in the second – after pumping a whopping 1.1 litres out of them – they look dramatically smaller.

According to Chi Chi, she has a natural over-supply of milk, and produces much more than the usual 100-150mls per go.

As the new mum puts it “sometimes breastfeeding looks like this,” and she wants to share the truth to get women educated about feeding.

Chi Chi runs a non profit organisation: Chi Chi’s Magic Milk, that promotes breastfeeding through education and support, with an emphasis on milk sharing.

She often shares updates on how to breastfeed, its benefits and pictures of her progress.
