About breastfeeding, is there a difference in the flow rate of breastmilk between small aa breasts and regular b or c breasts? Do aa's flow slower?

In brief: Flow rate

There is no defined or discovered flow rate difference based on breast size that i'm aware of.

In brief: No!

Breast size does not impact milk flow or volume.
In the newborn period follow your baby's weight often to be sure adequate milk supply is allowing normal growth. Babies grow 1/2 -1 ounce a day the first few months (after the first week's weight loss!).
