I've been noticing that when I pump, I get plenty of milk from the left side but hardly any (< 1 oz) from the right. I don't have any indication from DS that supply is significantly less on that side, though I did have mastitis on that side a couple of weeks postpartum.
I will be returning to work in January, when DS is almost four months, and pumping at work. I'm worried that the lack of pump response on that side will affect my supply. My lactation consultant recommended that I pump an extra five minutes on just that side. I've also read about breast compressions and will be trying that as well.
Does anyone have additional advice or suggestions?
