So I guess this is a question about expressing but it's likely happening when DS feeds from me too I just can't see obviously.
When I express feeds my left breast has about 5 ducts with milk coming out, but my right only has three. And the right comes out so slowly.
Is it normal for it to be like this? I also only get let down once and on both at the same time.

I think its pretty normal to have a better boob? I call that one chocolate and the other strawberry lol

Pretty sure it's normal to have one better than the other. I'd just offer bubs your "bad" side first when the sucking is stronger.
Regarding the let down I always let down with both breasts simultaneously.

Thanks. I knew it was normal to have one side that DS preferred which in turn would mean it produced more. But just thought it would produce less and be "empty" quicker rather than it flow slower.
Thanks again, was just a bit worried it meant there was a blockage or something.
