lopsided boobies

I havent really researched this problem, but I thought i would start here. One boob is (according to DH) the "**** star tittie" while the other is the "african tittie". I would like 2 **** star titties, or at least 2 breasts of closer size. I have been trying to feed her on the "african" one more, hoping that will up my supply. Is that going to help?

Re: lopsided boobies

I have read that one breast can become bigger if baby prefers that side, so nursing on the smaller side more often might help.

Re: lopsided boobies

Mine get uneven when I slack on feeding on teh one side. BUt at my size i just don't care. most people don't notice, but upping the feedings on the smaller size can help fix the problem, now once they mathc you have to keep feedings equal though or the smaller could become bigger than the other one.

Mine have always been uneven, so nursing just adds to it! LOL

Re: lopsided boobies

I never had lopsided boobies for my first 3, but then my 4th one they were terribly uneven Ugg, it was annoying! I have normally "ethiopian boobies" as dh calls them, but with my 4th one looked like the **** star and one looked like the ethiopian! I used to put an extra pad on the flat side or put no pad on the larger side and then I looked more even. I think it is because ds preferred one side over the other for sure.

Re: lopsided boobies

What is the deal with your husbands calling your boobs African and Ethiopian? What would they say if you told them they had little tiny penises??

Re: lopsided boobies

I have one DDD and one c. Mine have always been that way-- nursing has made no difference for me. My son prefers the big one (boob man, i guess)

Re: lopsided boobies

I don't get offended... my husbands penis sometimes gets called out on being squishy at times....

That's hysterical!! I don't think my husband would ever recover!
I'm very lopsided too. I'm trying to feed more on the little one, but it doesn't seem to be helping so far. Oh well

Re: lopsided boobies

Mine have always been a little different in size, but now BFing has made it worse. DH says he doesn't notice, but it still bugs me.
