My right beast doesn't seem to be making as much milk as my left. Baby is irratable when feeding on the right, spends 45mins+ on right and still comes off hungry, i've been putting her on the left then to top her up&she comes off within 10mins and seems full and satisfied. Ive been trying to pump off the right then as to stimulate it a bit an hr or so after finishing on the right and only get about 10mls after 20mins of pumping. I went back on the mini pill last week and have been spotting for the last 3days, could it be due to this?
I have stretched her feeding out a bit to 2-3 hourly on the advice of a breastfeeding advicer as she felt she was just snacking (was feeding 10-12 times+), and she has been more content since i've done this. She's also been sleeping regulary at least 6 hours per night for about a week, which I thought could also be the cause of my spotting. Even after this long sleep my right breast still doesn't seem full and is probably half the size as my left!
Wondering what the best approach to take is? To keep offering her the right breast first and then top her up with the left?
She's 9weeks old and has been gaining about 70z per week.
