Common Questions and Answers about Right breast produces more milk

breast

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.
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.
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 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.
4682212 tn?1357922698 My right breast does not produce much milk at all like maybe an oz every 4 hours but my left will produce closer to 5oz.
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 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!
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 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.
Avatar f tn Awesome thanks for the tips.
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 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??
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?
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.
2109562 tn?1347253848 You take about 3 a day n like the above post still feed baby every 2hrs from breast the more u do the more milk will come at night b sure to breastfeeding night feeding increases supply and if u formula do an ounce less then u normally would.
Avatar f tn You should get your milk right away.. you have to let baby try that produces more milk . With my first she didn't latch on I produced plenty but had to pump and bottle feed her my breast milk.. With second my water ruptured at 26 weeks I had her at 30 and I immediately started pumping.. the first few times you get very little (colostrum) but just keep on it.. the nurses could not believe how much breastmilk I brought in in just a 2 or 3 days..
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.
Avatar f tn I gave birth to 33 wk old twin boys on 12/21 and am pumping milk for them while they are in the nicu. Is there any remedies for making more milk since i feel as thought i'm not producing enough?
2207301 tn?1340990867 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.
Avatar n tn im not sure who to go to about this but i am 19 years old and i am not pregnant and i am 1000% sure that in not i have taken test and had blood work done and its all negative. i have got my period at 15 and for the past 2 years i have had a total of 5 periods and when i get it i have the worst pain ever as to were i am in bed and cant get up and it only lasts for about 3 to 5 days and its only spotting!
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??
