Oh, and i can't donate :-( otherwise i already would have started. my medications don't allow it.
I discovered that just hearing my nursing bra unsnap sets things in motion for a let down. Sometimes I unsnap it 30 seconds early . It also helps me to imagine/remember how it feels and it starts building.

My experience with taking the left side is that they will when they want it. And for us it was okay that the supply went down on that side bc she nursed it back up later. Her refusal was bc it was too strong though, so not sure if that helps you...
