Right breast produces more milk

Common Questions and Answers about Right breast produces more milk


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.
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'.

8762956 tn?1406304757 even tho am breastfeeding but the right breast is always. Full of breast milk always. Bigger.
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.

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.
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.
736293 tn?1316517842 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?
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 n tn s , But I also have a discharge from Both Breast one which is clear and one that is Milky , I had a Biopsy Of the Left Breast which returned as Milk , But the Right side began around a Year ago .

Sometimes there is Diffculty in Breathing , I am 39 Year's of age and Had a Total Hystercomy when I was 32 Years old.. I had a Mamogram around 5 Years ago , but am truely worried as to my current Symptoms ..
Avatar n tn I would like to know if milk can leak from the breast at any other time other than being pregnant and could this be a sign of any other medical problem. I am 38 and also had my tubes tied.
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 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.
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.
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 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 my breast have milk already and i am only 4 weeks
Avatar f tn Awesome thanks for the tips.
733930 tn?1286571409 (manual medela) i waited 4-5 days to buy a double breast pump incase she decided to try breast feeding again and ended up with a Lansinoh affinity double pump. ive been storing breast milk for her pretty well. i just basically pumped whenever i felt full and started keeping track of how much she ate vs how much i pump. when i finally got to counting and pumping on a schedule i noticed that my supply stayed the same and didnt increase.
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 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?
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 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..
