    Default Can your dominant side change?

    Y left side has always provided the highest demab for me-until this week. When pumping the right side 3 oz was about my max (that was pushing it) now its 5-6 on the right and 2-3 on the left?

    I have been wondering the same thing. For the first few months, my right was higher producing, but by about 6 mos in, they flip-flopped. So based on purely anecdotal evidence, I guess the answer to your question is yes! I wonder if baby preference (even if undetectable to us) changes how they nurse on each, which in turn can change the supply. Just my theory anyway.
