About breastfeeding, is it really true that women with small (30aa) sizes can make enough milk, or do doctors just say that so women won't feel badly?

In brief: Size doesn't matter
Your breasts will make as much milk as your baby needs.
Your breast size does not affect that. Your breasts may slightly get larger during breastfeeding but it does usually go back down to your regular cup size when you stop breastfeeding.

Nutrition does matter though. I've seen women with very large breast have difficulty breastfeeding for a number of reasons, especially poor nutrition, stress, fatigue, and caffeine use.

She actually succesfully fed two kids that thrived, she had so much extra she donated to al banked breast milk program.
