I was wondering how much milk a baby recieves if there is no, or only one, let down? My left breast is twice the size of the right one and has two to three let downs per feeding (20 minutes). The right one sometimes doesn't have any. I'm worried of course my DS(5 1/2 months old) isn't getting enough, that he is constipated lately doesn't help either as far as counting dirty diapers
Within seconds of a letdown, he sucks vigorously for about 10 seconds- is that long enough? Often from the left breast he chokes and some of it comes back out again when I burp him...
I notice when pumping too (yes, I know it is nothing to go by)that the right breast yields just a few drops. Any way to improve yield in one breast like offering it more ie, at the begininng of a feeding? Any chance the left brst will become the same size as the right one or vice versa in the near or distant future?
