Lazy Boob?!
 
I just went back to work and noticed when I am pumping I can only get 1-2 oz from one side and 3-4 oz on the other. What is going on? Is there any way to make the lazy side produce more?

From everything I've seen, having a lazy boob is completely normal. For me, it's my right side and it typically produces an ounce or so less than my left. Not sure that there's really anything you can do about it :-/

lol, "lazy boob", never heard it described that way. :giggle: I think it's completely normal. Maybe try nursing/pumping from the lazy side more often than the other and they will even out. :headscratch:

This. Nursing more often on the lazy side might work, but don't stress if it doesn't. :thumbsup:

It's my right side too..so weird. I'm glad other people have "lazy boobs" too! lol I have been trying to nurse more on that side to see if things will even out. We'll see...

I have the same problem but with nursing. My DS never wants to nurse on one side. I am afraid I have lost most of my supply because of it. I have tried to pump to make up but it is getting me nowhere. I am getting discouraged.
