When my DS was born it seemed like he preferred the right side over the left...and consequently I think that was the breast that ended up producing more. Even now, six months later he doesn't seem to have a preferred boob but it seems like my right still produces more...at least in pumping. I think its normal.
I see that this is an old thread but I had a similar question. I wasn't sure if I should make anew thread or revive this one.
I am nursing my 7 month old baby. He is my fourth child, and first boy
The girls preferred the right side and used to need to be rocked more when nursing on the left side. Now he comes along and practically refuses to nurse on the left side. I have been getting used to it but I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas. It got much worse by my last breast infection on that side. This was like 2-3 months ago.
Some people have thought maybe it tastes different on the left side. He really doesn't like the cradle hold on that side. I have to nurse him int he football hold to get him to nurse. After about 7 minutes, he flails off me and works so hard to turn his body away from me.
Thanks for letting me get this a bit off my chest.
My right produces about 4 oz, while my left produces maybe 2 oz. It use to bother me, but not anymore. My son only drinks about 4.5 ounces of pumped milk. He seems to get full off of one breast alone. I still pump from my left to keep supply up, in case he wants a little extra to drink
