    Default Could one side be producing more milk?

    Hi ladies, quick question about supply. I just started pumping once a day while my son nurses to start building a small back-up supply of breastmilk. I've noticed that I get more milk from my left side than my right. I usually get around 2-2.5 oz from my left side versus about 1 oz from my right side when I pump. At birth, my son favored my left side so now I'm wondering if it got a little more stimulation in those early days. Also, my left side does leak slighty when I'm getting out of the shower, but my right side doesn't. So now I'm wondering if that's normal? If not, what can I do to increase the supply on my right side? Thanks!!

    My right side always produced at least double what my left side did. I always favored that side when we were out and about and I'm sure it was due to that.
