    My right one isn't actually larger than the left but it definately produces way more. I had been thinking that it was because DD only liked to be held upright in the early days and she was always on the left side putting pressuer on it.

    I am left handed and formerly left boobed. My first two DDs preferred the left as the milk just falls out of it. It always leaked and was smaller. DD3 it turns out is tongue-tied and prefers the right because the nipple pokes out far and points out so that it is towards the roof of her mouth and is easier to latch on to. My boobs are looking pretty lopsided these days.

    Mine aren't necessarily lopsided, but I'm right-handed and my left boob is the milkiest!! Weird, huh?

    Definitely lopsided and it doesn't bother me. I'm rt handed and rt side is larger. Though next time around I'd like to try to nurse more often on the left side so I can do more while lo eats.

    I haven't had time to read the whole thread, but I think I may be alone in this: my right breast has more milk, but the left breast is actually bigger.

    Oh, and I am right handed.
