    Default Un even breasts..!

    Just wondering if anyone has any tips to 'even' up my breasts! For the last week or so, one breast has been a LOT bigger than the other. My bub is only taking one at a time. I'm not sure if I should feed from the other side a few more times before swapping over / instead of alternating breasts every time and just hand express a bit from the 'big one'? Any advice appreciated.

    I would try and feed more from the other side. My DS prefered the right side and fed from it more often, now i have permanent uneven breasts.

    Default Un even breasts..!

    I was very uneven when feeding DD1. I had a lot of milk but could not feed from both breasts as she would get too much foremilk that gave her a tummy ache. I found expressing made it worse as it would just keep the supply up. It corrected itself after about 2 weeks. I have not had that issue with DD2 so I am unsure what caused it.

    I wouldn't suggest expressing from the larger one, it will just keep supply higher than the other.

    I had the same problem, one breast was just more efficient at producing milk than the other. I tended to feed once on the larger one, and the next two or three feeds from the smaller one to help correct it. It was a little uncomfortable as the larger breast would let down too. Only that side needs breast pads.

    But by about 6 months the difference settled down. It is only slight variation now at 16months, still bfeeding.
