My cousin did this and afterwards 1 boob was a half cup size bigger than the other boob even a year after she stopped breastfeeding 🤷🏻‍♀️ just 1 anecdote though …

I never produced much on the left, so as a tired mom I just fed exclusively from the right side, the side that “worked”. Yes it will look slightly odd when you are engorged and one side is 3 times bigger than the no milk side, honestly though other than close friends nobody noticed or cared. And for anyone who did notice I was too tired to care. So I happily fed on the most efficient side. Now 3 years post partum they are both the original size (minus a half cup) than they originally were, but hey the ratio is the same! Lol. Interestingly the left and never used much side is sagging at the same rate as the right and very much used side 🤷🏻‍♀️

Is it a flange fit issue? I found those silicone inserts, combined with hand massage worked well. I always had one slightly more efficient side too. Personally would be afraid to only pump one side in case I wind up lopsided and needing a boob job! 😱

Me. Even with double pumping my left never increased. In the AM I get at most 2 oz on L and can get 5+ on the R. I likely have insufficient granular tissue on left. My right breast was always bigger than the left, now, it very much is. I still double pump even if by the end of the day I only get 1 oz or less per feed.

I must have favored my left side while feeding in order to have my right hand free to do things. Although, I did try to feed equally on both sides. I am a full cup size bigger on my left side.

I did have that experience! One had much more supply

My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
