Re: Why is one breast fuller all the time
Welcome and congratulations on the new baby!
It's very normal for a mom to have one breast that makes more milk than the other. When that leads to a troublesome lopsidedness, there are a couple of things you can try:
- Start all or most feedings on the smaller side. Babies tend to nurse more aggressively and empty the breast more thoroughly at the beginning of a feeding, leading to increased production.
- Alternate sides as usual, but pump the smaller side after feedings to boost production on that side.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
