One Breast is Bigger than the Other
Visitor Question: MY left breast gets noticeably larger than the right.. It has a better milk supply than the right. What can I do so that both my breasts have equal amounts of milk and are both the same size?
Breastfeeding Magazine Response:
This size difference is very common and will go back to normal once you are done breastfeeding no matter what you do now.
Your baby may be favoring the one breast (maybe it is more comfortable in that position) or you just may have more milk ducts on that side.
However, if you want to try to “fix” it you can try to manipulate the milk supply to increase it in the smaller breast and decrease it in the larger one to try to “even them out.”
Breast milk works on supply and demand. The more you demand from one breast the more it will make. Try purposefully nursing (or pumping) more on the smaller breast or always starting on that side until they seem to even out.
Simply adjusting your milk production in this way seems to work for most moms!
