1123420 tn?1350564758 u will probably find it hard 2 actually pump enough for the first 3 months or so(at least thats what i found) as a lot of the time u need 2 w8 untill your body produces the right amount of milk for your baby naturally(so i was told by a midwife)!however differnt professonals say different things!it will probably hurt just as much but that disappears within anything from a few days to 2 weeks(with normal breastfeeding anyway)!however dont worry about the bond not being there!
2207301 tn?1340994467 How long does our take for your breast milk to dry up? I've been super busy and stressed so ive started supplementing when I'm busy and i just tried to pump and some came out but not a full feeding. I can't just pump allot and get my milk back right? Cause i still have some.
492921 tn?1321293496 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.
736293 tn?1316521442 Lately i have been pumping once a day and giving her a bottle to get her ready for when i go back to work. I noticed when pumping that on my right breast i am getting 3 oz, but on the left side i am only getting 1 oz. My daughter nevers seems to go hungry and i know that i am going to produce milk based on demand, but is there a way to up my supply on the side that isn't producing as well?
483853 tn?1208541979 I also had the same problem that I was not making enough milk and my doctor suggested that I use the breast pump when Archie wasnt eating even when there wasn´t anything in the breast, that way the body thinks the baby wants more milk and so produces it. It worked for me, I was making more than I needed after a while, I did feel like I was a cow being milked for a while because I always had the baby or the pump on the breast, it is very time consuming too!
Avatar n tn It is only fulller, since it produces more milk. Start letting her nurse longer on the small side, even when it is empty. It will stimulate more production, and as a result, things will 'even out'.
689528 tn?1364139441 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 n tn The last time I nursed was 5 years ago. I was bathing the other day and I noticed when I put preassure on my right breast, that there was something coming out of 2 of the ducts - the bottom one, the discharge was a normal milky color - the top one, it was a VERY DARK GREY, almost black! Nothing will come out of my left breast, even if squeezed. I am EXTREMELY concerned about this, and have no idea what could cause such a thing! - Any clues?
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.
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 I never had weight lose from breastfeeding!! I was just as hungry after having the baby as I was pregnant!! I didn't lose anything except hospital weight until we stopped nursing with my first two babies..
Avatar n tn It does work, eventually. The body produces milk by the demand it's being given. Make sure you are getting your breasts fully emptied at each session. Drink lots of water, too. Good luck to ya!
Avatar n tn Even if I put a clean bra, in a few hours it will be smelling strong. Sometimes the smell reminds me of dry breast milk. Like the smell of your bra when you are breastfiding and some milk drips and you do not have a chance to change it within the next few hours. This smell started about 5 yearws ago, probably in the beginging of my pre-menopause.
Avatar n tn I am 33 years old. I have a 16 month old little girl that I did breastfeed up until 8-9 months old...So I have not been breastfeeding for about 8-9 months now. I periodically squeeze my breast ( don't ask me why. ha! old habits I guess) to see if anything would still come out. I happen to do this yesterday and a "discharge" did come out of my right breast. It was not white like the milk was, but more like the collustrum (sorry, spelling?
Avatar f tn My first son was born 12 years ago and I never produced any milk. I want to breast feed for new baby that is coming. I am 32 weeks. Does anyone have ideas how to boost milk supply? We have bought a host grade pump this time.
Avatar f tn A friend told me that she read somewhere, that the left breast produces more milk than the right in most women. In the end when my daughter was eating more solids, she reverted to feeding only from the left breast.
Avatar n tn so i began wondering if maybe the bleeding didnt mean i wasnt still pregnant but then realized i would of felt movement of a baby by now or something and i havent...my breast have very noticable blue veins showing more so then ever before and as i said the nipple and area around is larger then normal...could i have some type of infection? Please give me your thoughts and opinions. I am lost as what to do...or if this is normal and shouldnt worry about it...
Avatar f tn So I assumed my left breast was just producing more milk causing it to be more engorged than my right. But upon breastfeeding I found out that my right is actually producing more. Is it normal for one to be firmer and produce less?
480331 tn?1310407129 This is really funny I have the same issue only opposite sides. My left breast produces twice as much milk so that's the one I always pump from. However the baby hates to nurse from that side. My right breast is the one I always nurse from, but if I pump it only produces about 2 oz of milk.
Avatar f tn Your body will product colustrum for the time being until your milk starts to transition to mature milk. The more you latch baby the quicker your milk will transition. If you have anymore questions or need help I will help you inbox me anytime. Kellymom. Com is a great resourceful website to go to about breastfeeding it helped with a great amount of my own questions. Breastfeeding is a wonderful experience, but the beginning can be hard for some.
4105678 tn?1356548871 Each pregnancy produces different breast milk specifically made for the babies needs. breast milk is way more healthy then formula, plus its free which is pretty swell lol and you loose weight faster and if you work and aren't there to breast feed just pump for while your gone and you can pump at work too. You burn more then 500 calories a day just from breast feeding.
Avatar m tn you may also find that in the end you dont make enough milk for your baby, you will in the begining but when they have their growth spurts, around 6 wks (the first), putting your baby to the breast more often is what produces more milk, so the more you put him to your breast for a feed, the more your body will produce, etc, just keep on doing it for as long as you can, even in those first few days put bub to breast so he can get your colestrum as well, any breast milk is better than none :)
Avatar n tn He and my family physician believe the problem may be an intraductal papilloma - a small tumor in the milk duct. Most are benign. I am awaiting an answer right now from the pathologist. I am 45 years old and am in menopause. Anyone else had such a thing? I understand they are mostly non-cancerous.
189192 tn?1261345228 It was only needed temp until my milk came in. Breast feeding has been so much more difficult than I thought it would be. Everything seems to be perfect except for all the anxienty around bf. Part of me just wants to give up and go to formula but the other loves the experience even with ALL its challenges so I keep trying. Here is my latest dilema. My milk has come in so I am not using the formula to supplement. Jacob has started to only want to feed off of one breast (the left one).
1936550 tn?1348363808 My left breasts produces 3 ounces and right only 1 1/2 ounces. I know its enough for her but She doesn't drink all of it, I will be lucky if she consumes 2 ounces. Which is why I have to pump or else they will leak. I just hope I don't give up, I would love to keep breast feeding my baby girl.
Avatar n tn My bf didn't come easily and the questionable side was more prone to milk production. My breasts would get lumpy due to milk. Well, before lo was born, I had my OBGYN check my dc again. Lab work of dc- negative. Now, I went to another OBGYN and asked her about my scares as I am still having white dc in 1 breast, both bs feel lumpy and I still have arm lump. I'm a mess.
Avatar f tn I'v noticed for yr.s that my right breast would sometimes have a crusty residue. About a yr. ago it would sometimes leak a clear yellowish, almost oily liquid, if I pressed on it. Within the past 3 months this liquid has turned dark, nearly brown. I'm in no pain. Should I be worried? We just lost our health insurance, and hate to run up another bill if this is fairly normal.
Avatar f tn That Should give u a good start up supply. The more u feed/ pump, the more milk your body produces. When u get home, don't use bottles make sure you breast feed. You can do it, irs kinda vigorous but def possible.
