    Left sided here. Started out close in size initially, but the right side is dismal now... Despite much effort in maintaining supply with it. I would always start feedings on the right and then switch to the left for the majority of the feed, just to keep the stimulation happening to the right. Pumping is indicative for me. I've only ever got max 50mls from right and 150+ from left. This indication is from pumping the same time every night for the last 3 months. These days I'm only getting about 20mls from it. So you can just imagine my lopsided-ness is next level!

    Definitely a good right boob and a slack left one here. I thought of a couple of possible reasons - the right boob was the first one DS fed from as a newborn, maybe it made a stronger neural connection? And the left boob used to have a nipple piercing when I was younger, perhaps there was some scarring so fewer milk ducts?

    If we have #2 I'll put them on the left side first to test this hypothesis

    They evened out after about 12-18 months, when supply stayed low and steady in both.

    After my milk came in at the hospital my DS would only feed from my left boob. This freaked me out as I thought I would be destined to pumping my right boob every day for the next year but after discussions with the MW and LC we found it was due to my right nipple being too flat for him to latch. The LC gave me a nipple shield and this immidiately fixed the issue. Since then (2 weeks ago) I always use the shield when feeding on my right and my milk supply has stayed high and even between boobs and DS will feed from either boob without an issue. Hopefully this keeps up!

    Yep. Left.

    With ds3 I consciously made an effort to promote righty but to no avail.
