I've be BFing for 1 week now...and using the nipple shields. When I feed my boy on my left, I hear him swallowing, but am really listening to see if he's getting enough. When he pulls off, there is NO milk in the breast sheild. However on my right side, he's swallowing. He pulls off and there is milk dripping down his chin and the nipple shield is full of milk.
Am I losing my milk on my left side?? I tried pumping last night and got 1 ounce after he fed out of the Left and an ounce out of the right. I am so happy my breasts are no longer engorged and I don't want to over pump for fear it will return. Any suggestions??
am i losing my milk supply?
