    Default Lopsided!! Can this be rectified?

    My left boob is a good 2 sizes smaller than my right since breastfeeding. But only recently. As breastfeeding works on supply and demand if I nurse more on my left will they balance back out?

    He now prefers my right and I struggle to get him to stay on my left side :-(

    Yes, the way to deal with lopsidedness is to increase frequency of stimulation to and milk removal from the underachieving breast. Offer the left side first at feedings- babies tend to be hungriest at the beginning of feedings and are consequently less picky about which breast they are offered. If that isn't enough to remedy the lopsidedness, pump the left in addition to nursing.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
