Big gulp

I have one boob that my husband calls the big gulp. I can get 9oz out of it during a morning pump. The other he calls the sippy cup because it is significantly smaller and will only produce an ounce or two. My baby doesn't seem to like it as much and even grimaces at it when I begin to feed her with it! What is up?

I called mine the hefty lefty and lighty righty with my kids. Totally normal that they have one they like better and so they are on it more, making more milk.

Re: Big gulp

My last kiddo did this as well. To combat the lopsided look I would start baby on the less desirable side until he got used to using both sides equally.

Part of the issue for us was I was more comfortable nursing on one side than the other side.

My right regularly produces 2-3x more than the left. If DS is really hungry he is happiest on the right and will fidget on the left.
