Hello goddesses. I've only posted on this website once before so I'm still kind of confused as to how it works..
I just turned 18 in January and I have a 10 month old daughter. I'm still EBF and I love it, as does she. I made the mistake when I first had her of feeding her more on my right breast because my left breast would leak a LOT during each feeding and I didn't understand the importance of nursing equally on both sides.
I love my new mama body, I've never felt more beautiful..except for one thing.
My right breast is a full D cup and my left side is hardly a B. My Birdie still prefers the right side because I make probably 6-7 oz (or more) a day on that side. I'm not even making 1 oz a day on my left side..
I'm not worried about what other people think..but I'm embarrassed of the way that I look and I get tears in my eyes every time I see myself topless. I would really like to get better milk production back on the left.. is it too late?
I try to nurse and nurse and nurse on that side, but my girl doesn't necessarily like that breast so she pretty much refuses it.
Is pump rental a good option? Is it possible to get production back? Has anybody else dealt with this??
Any feedback is appreciated and thank you for your time!! xo
