The left side is plainly full, but I've been putting her on the right side first even though there's hardly anything there to try and get it to make more milk. I was considering getting some fenugreek pills today to see if that would help. It's just so weird that its the right side that's drying up because its my left side that I keep getting clogged ducts in. We've almost made it to four months EBF, but we still have a long way to go so I need to figure this out. Thanks for your input.
You should switch sides. I would not continue to only free off the right. You're telling your body the left doesn't need to produce. I would just nurse and worry if she's not gaining or having enough wet/poopy diapers. You're body knows what its doing don't stress it. Using a different pump can affect outcome. Remember when you pump that's not the amount you're making JUST the amount you pumped. Pumps don't empty your breast like A baby.
