    Default Difference in output...anyone else?

    I know that one breast usually produces more than the other but this morning I was able to pump 4 ounces from my left breast but only 1 ounce from my right.

    Has anyone else experienced such a large difference???

    Is this normal??

    oh yeah! I have been known to pump 9 oz from one and just 2 from the other!!! That's not typical, but my right almost always at least doubles the left.

    Oh good. I was starting to think I was a freak of nature! I always pump close to the same from each side...I don't know what the difference was today. At least I know there are others like me

    Just another vote yes....and mine actually switched too!

    In the beginning I got more from the left, now it is the other way around.
