My right breast produces A LOT more milk than my left. I would get so engorged in some spots that I thought they were clogs, but I went to my doc and he said there weren't any clogs.
My left side feels great all of the time....but my right gets so engorged before the next feeding. And at night...OMG....it fills up so fast and hurts so bad. My baby only wakes up twice to nurse at night (he is 5 weeks)...and therefore my right side doesn't always get drained. Last night I had to wake up twice just to pump off a little (less than an oz) just to get relief (I don't want to get clog ducts or mastitis).
Does anyone has suggestions to get the right to produce less and even out with the left? I was pumping to drain the breast when I thought I had clogs. But now, when my baby nurses on the left, I pump on the right just enough to get relief (about 2 oz)....I am hoping that sends the message to only produce what I need and not more. Is this right or should I be doing something else.
