Dear Boobies, why in the world do you have to be so difficult? Its obvious I have flat nipples and the only side Tristan can even latch onto with any success and you won't give up any nummys to him. Grr cooperate already!!

When I pump to get milk for him one boob is doing super awesome and putting out about a half ounce of colostrum...the other boob is anywhere from a few drops to maybe a teaspoon. And that happens to be the only one little man can latch too. However!!! It takes a long time to get even that small amount from that boob while pumping like seriously 20 minutes.And obviously little man is not that patient to suck that long. And of course the one boob he can't latch onto at all has no problems producing at all! And he will take a bottle but he won't nurse with the shield at all. Sigh! I am not sure why he won't with the shield but he also hates a pacifier but loves his fingers. So frustrated!

All three of my kiddos hated the paci. Hope milk comes in full supply really soon.

My right side is the super milker and it is also the one with the most inverted nipple. I pump twice as much out of my right side than I do my left. Rory doesn't seem to mind which boob he gets but he also doesn't stay on very long :\ Still the bottle for us. But at least he's still latching!

My left side produces way more milk and has for every single one of my babies. I hope things improve for you once your milk comes in!

I'm sorry you're having a rough time. My right boob is my work horse and was with Anna, too. I can get twice the milk from the right as from the left. I also find it irritating. Hang in there! We had a really rough first week BFing, but it's gotten a lot better. I hope it does for you, too!

My left tends to produce a little more too. It's fairly even at the beginning, but as nursing continues months down the road it's pretty obvious that the left does more. My right one is always prone to clogged ducts and mastitis
