    I thought it seemed familiar.

    My right boob has always been bigger even before having a baby, but it was definitley a better producer and the size difference increased int he early months of nursing. I suspected in my case it was because my pump horn fit my right boob better than my left so it was getting more stimulation when I pumped.

    ETA: and I'm right handed.

    Right Handed and I get about twice as much from the right boob when I pump. But they look the same. LO usually refers the right expect for night feeding when he prefers the left

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    my left has always been larger and the dominant over achiever when pumping, when feeding Silas has always preferred the right breast though? ....

    I even have to have 2 different horn sizes for Large for left and Regular for right

    I'm Right hand dominant in writing/typing but left haded at most other things, I can write with my left but it's not pretty, or fast just legible

    I was slightly lopsided from the beginning but when I had nipple trauma (from having flat nipples) the right one healed right away and the left one never fully recovered. It also never really pulled out, whereas the right one did. As of about 7 months I only nurse off the right side - the left has pretty much dried up - so I am really lopsided now! On the plus side I have a pretty good idea of how the right one will look when I wean and it's not so bad.

    I did a lot of alternating, because DS wanted thirds, and fourths, and fifths...

    Right and right for me(maybe I like being Right too much?). Actually, DS seemed to prefer left in the very beginning, probably due to flat nipple on the right and it still manages to be my producer with both kids.
