Hi there! I am starting out with nursing again as my son was born almost 3 weeks ago. Things are going well, but I am having problems yet again with my left breast. I have either one of two probelms(I think!):
1) My left breast just does not produce as much as my right.
2) My right breast has overactive letdown, while my left doesn't. This means DS has to "work" to get the milk out of my left and doesn't on my right. He gets lazy and refuses to work for it which causes my supply on my left to decrease.
I'm leaning toward the second one as the issue. With either of the issues, the main issue is that my left side ends up not producing as much and therefore DS needs to eat on left and then right to get full. Then the next time I nurse he only needs right to get full, so my right gets twice as much "action" and therefore ends up producing more milk. In between feedings my right side is noticeably more full then my left. This wouldn't be such an issue except with DD she eventually gave up on leftie all together and it dried up leaving poor rightie to do all the work which was NOT fun. I don't want this to happen. How do I get my breasts to be more equal so that my son does not give up on leftie??
