Re: lopsided boobies

Mine got like that after I'd been nursing for a 5-6 months. I was worried that the smaller one didn't have as much milk. The advice I got was to start on the smaller one and even sometimes finish with it, too. Or, pump to make sure that it's not a supply issue. I think most babies & maybe mom's too, have a preference bc one is just more comfortable, etc. Eventually they became more even again and then both shrank to smaller than they'd been since puberty when I weaned.

Re: lopsided boobies

I am lopsided bc I usually feed the twins on the same side and I guess one is more effective

Re: lopsided boobies

I was lopsided for a few days after nursing all night on one side, but they're the same again now after nursing as much as possible on the smaller one. Always start with the smaller one and go as long as you can before switching. I read that milk supply is based on how many demands recieved more than how long, so more sessions, even if short, will increase the milk in the smaller one.

Re: lopsided boobies

I am lopsided as well, but only DH notices. I have been this way for more than 3 years- my right side always makes more than my left, go figure!! I tried and tried to even them out but it never worked. Anyway my babies have all been healthy so it wasn't a big deal.

Makes me think of Larry the Cable Guy... I could win both 2nd and 3rd place in a wet t- shirt contest... LOL

Re: lopsided boobies

I am just chimming in to say that I have one that is a- and one that is a d because one side is nursed and the other has been dried out since 1 month after ds was born!

Re: lopsided boobies

So I have been nursing AMAP (is that an actual acronym used in here?? as much as possible??) on the african, and I think I am seeing results! It is starting to leak when I feed of the PST, like PST does when I feed off AT. Let's pump this baby up!!
