Left breast produces more milk

Common Questions and Answers about Left breast produces more milk

breast

Avatar f tn This is completely normal and happens to most women who breastfeed. My left breast is always fuller and produces more milk (almost three times as much as my right). It does not affect the baby at all.
492921 tn?1321289896 I also use a Medela PIS and I get at least 2 ounces more from my right breast. It's normal to have a breast that produces more. The reason why my right produces more is because my daughter prefers to nurse from that one. She has problems latching onto my left breast because my left nipple is flat so from birth she's always nursed better on the right side which is why I think it produces much more than the left. She's almost 5 months old and she still nurses every 2-3 hours.
480331 tn?1310403529 I produce more milk from my right breast and I can usually get 2 maybe 3 oz from my left breast. However, my baby only nurses on my right breast. I have tried many times to introduce him to my left breast but it still hurts like crazy! If I can get him to latch on correctly though, he doesn't mind nursing from it. More often than not, I nurse him on my right while pumping my left breast.
Avatar f tn well i can breastfeed with both breasts, but i do find that my left breast produces slightly more. i wouldnt worry about it tho. it might be that way with breasts.
8762956 tn?1406304757 even tho am breastfeeding but the right breast is always. Full of breast milk always. Bigger.
4682212 tn?1357922698 Also it does happen that one breast takes to being pumped better. My right always gives more when pumping then my left but my left seems to produce more. It is fine to wear underwire bras while nursing. I even have underwire nursing bras.
689528 tn?1364135841 As for the different amounts, one side typically produces more milk than the other. For me I get more output on my left side.
Avatar f tn Then once baby is born, they both leak, however my left produces more milk. That may just be your good side leaking ;) I wouldnt worry too much about it until your baby is born and your milk starts producing so youll have a better idea of what your dealing with.
615752 tn?1361867986 My sister has a problem with her breasts where one is lots smaller than the other and the smaller one does not produce milk but the larger one does. Her body has adapted to the needs of the baby and the one breast produces more than enough milk for her baby.
Avatar n tn Sometimes on breast produces more. Try feed first in the side with less milk, them go to the one with more and then back to the first. The break will give your breast a chance to refill.
Avatar f tn The more you breastfeed, the more milk your baby needs, therefore, your breast produces more milk for the baby. So yes, I would suppose they would get bigger.
5154295 tn?1372284196 ) and the more your baby needs the more you will produce..
Avatar f tn im producing so much milk on my left and my right has 2oz. Only i feed on the left one feeding nd the right next feeding sorry if confusing need answers thankyou.
Avatar n tn t made so she had to make it get the shape to how it suppose to be well so I been producing a lot of milk and I been giving her both breast and out of nowhere I feel my right breast getting more harder with more milk than my left I barely feel my baby gets enough when she is on my left and my left hurts more than my right my left doesn't really get hard with milk anymore and my right does ..is this normal??
1657254 tn?1327098055 I have read somewhere and discussed also with a friend that the left breast produces more milk. Has anyone else heard of that??
Avatar f tn Im 25 weeks pregnant, my nipples have been itching really bad for the last few weeks and leaking little bits of water hear and there. However today i gripped my left breast and loads of yellow water started pouring out, at least 3 tablespoons worth . Is this normal?
Avatar f tn No, it means you can't drink milk or eat dairy products and you can't give dairy products to your baby. Breast milk won't cause a baby problems unless you drink milk. I hope this answers your question.
10882379 tn?1435465934 I am a FTM, 30w4d, and I am getting a little worried because I have not noticed any breast milk yet. I am grateful that I am not leaking or anything, but at the same time I am wondering if this is normal? If you already have children, about when did you start producing milk? Or does anyone have a ballpark idea? I am planning on breastfeeding my son and I just want to make sure that I am on track to do so. Thanks!
1158221 tn?1327972603 My left breast made more milk and now I only BF with the left breast, my daughter knows it has more milk (she's 19 months old). I had alot of let-down too and expressed sometimes, but my daughter did end up getting enough milk, it's normal to worry :-) I avoided alot of gassy foods and if there i a history of allergies in your or your partners families then it is recommended to avoid them.
1191262 tn?1366763021 I belive I overused the same left side so my left breast has much more milk supply than the right one, it is visible because the breast size is not the same lol For your info, my child is almost 3 months now, is it too late to re-balance the milk supply? Any ideas are welcome!
Avatar f tn Awesome thanks for the tips.
Avatar f tn I would place hot rags on my chest or heating pad- the heat draws the milk out faster. And pumping in between feedings produces more milk. Plus babies hit growth spurts so u wanna make sure u have enough stocked up for when those spurts come.
9171934 tn?1405180032 I just got done with my last breast feeding class the other day and it's completely normal for colostrum to still be producing for the first week, then milk will be coming in. With colostrum, it's still thin and will still make the baby hungry. Adter your milk supply comes in, less feedings because there is more calories to make the baby full longer. You're body actually produces more calories at night if breast feeding.
Avatar f tn I have managed to get my breasts to a more comfortable softness throughout the day but for awhile my right breast had been harder and was more tender near my armpit and almost lumpy from engorgement and so I tried to feed more often on that side to try and help ease the pain and pressure but now my right breast is bigger and produces alot more with my pump.
544906 tn?1291345405 My right breast produces more milk than my left, therefore, I'm lopsided too!
5705417 tn?1385880834 Continuous or often pumping and breastfeeding will increase your breast milk. The more frequent you breastfeed the baby and sufficiently "emptying" the breast, the more milk you will produce. But do not forget to nourish your own body, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, foods rich in vitamins that will help keep you healthy.
Avatar n tn My baby will turn 1 year old in two weeks. I'm not sure if I should continue with breast milk or should I give her whole milk. Some mom told me that breast milk isn't that effective in this stage because the nutrient is less in the breast milk so my baby will not get all the good stuff as she used to because the milk is not the same. Is it true?
