Breastfeeding and Size

Posted by cookie8 (My Page) on

Well, one side anyways, is at least one cup size bigger than the other. I don't think I am favouring right over left but pretty soon walking a straight line will be impossible, a full circle sure! Anyone else lopsided and any correcting this? My little one is three months old.

I do think often one side is more efficient at making milk. And I also experienced that my babies preferred one side, maybe because it was more efficient. Don't know. Congratulations on your little one!

RE: Breastfeeding and Size

I had that problem too. In addition to what was mentioned above, someone on these forums suggested to me that my child might have an ear infection. I took ds to the pediatrician and he did have an ear infection.

My only suggestion for correcting the size is to start off on the smaller side and use it more.

RE: Breastfeeding and Size

No, she doesn't seem to have a preference, may have to look into my preference. I will start on the smaller size and use it more as suggestion. How clinical sounding. Thanks on the congrats, she is my easiest going yet! Something out there is trying to tempt me to have another. Not buying though.
