I was pumping this morning and while my left breast was going along just fine, my right breast took a solid 5 minutes to produce even a drop, and I only got a fraction of the milk out of it after 20 minutes. Do you think I have a clogged duct? Or is this normal sometimes?

When I pumped, I always produced more from one breast over the other. I honestly can't even remember which one. But I would feed her in the morning and then pump both breasts and one was ALWAYS more. It was the same when I pumped at work and the same when I pumped after work and before bed. I even took the different pills to try and up my supply for that breast, LOL. It seemed like I got a little bit more out of it and A LOT more out of the other one!

I think it's pretty normal. Some woman produce more from one side then the other. I've also here of mamas who can only produce on one side.

I have always produced several ounces more from one side than the other - through all 3 children. Completely normal.

Sounds normal to me, I am quite sure I produce a lot more on my right side than my left. And he does favor that side.

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!
