I have been breastfeeding for 2 months. I go back to work in a month and so I pump to store milk. Last night it had been 5 hours and I got 5 oz. from my right breast, and only 3 from my left. My left never feels full and I am worried that it is slowly making less and less. Any tips?

Do these amounts seem like I should be worrying? or taking steps to increase supply? I have been noticing that others seems to pump a lot more.

No need to worry, sometimes one breast does produce more or just responds better to a pump. They will even out with time.

When i pump, i notice i get less from the breast that my lil one last ate off of. So, it alternates for me, but i usually get less from one over the other.
