    Default Help pls. lopsided breast n overproduction

    Hi. My Lo is 5 weeks now and i 've always had problem with low milk supply. Then suddenly since 4 days ago my left breast started over producing so much so it gets painfully engorged within 2 hours of feed. and my right breast hardly seems to fill up. when i pump i can easily get 5 oz on the left n hardly 2 oz on the right. what do i do? if i keep putting him on the left won't it get overstimulated? but at this rate i can hardly put him on the right coz the left is so full all the time
    I am currently also pumping out to relieve engorgemnet on the left. i'm afraid i'm overstimulating my left breast too much but don't know what else to do.
    pls help..

    Hi mama!

    Here is some info that may help. And remember, pumping is no indicator of what your supply really is. You could have a boob full of milk but not be able to pump any of it out...
