Re: Inhibited Let-down on "Off" Side
We're not perfectly symmetrical beings, so it's pretty normal to have one breast that doesn't perform as well as the other. For most moms this just means that one breast produces more milk than the other, but I can see how a mom might have one breast that just isn't as responsive to suckling and doesn't let down as fast as the other. And what might compound the problem is that babies acre smart. They don't want to waste their time a timely nursing on a "lazy" breast, and less active nursing means that it's going to take the "lazy" side even longer to let down.
It sounds like you're doing quite well despite all this- a nursing frequency of every 2 hours is absolutely normal and not an indication that baby is getting a half feed. And you've gotten this far without resorting to supplements or what have you, I see no reason why anything needs to change in the next couple of months. As you get closer and closer to a year, and the baby's solid food intake starts to pick up, you're not going to have quite as much responsibility for his food intake and therefore it won't as much if you have one breast that is a bit of an underachiever.
