    Thank you. Your threads/posts have really hit home for me so I know you can relate. I could've written half your posts.

    Then I decide to breastfeed now one boob has no milk either they are squirting with over supply or low on supply why is this all so hard!!!

    Can someone tell me why one boob would dry up?

    Oh gd now I'll have 1 big boob and one prune boob. Is this karma for being so self conscious πŸ™‰

    I randomly had that issue with DD2 I would always offer the empty boob anyway, and do massages/compressions and express to try and stimulate supply, then feed bub with the full one. My LC said it's normal to sometimes have one fuller side.

    Just wanted to say good luck, breastfeeding is hard work and you're doing a great job xx

    Breastfeeding IS hard work I had no idea!!! We need this to be a subject at school I swear. Although I probably would've forgotten by now😫

    I don't know if anyone else was told how hard it was... but in my BF class it was all magic and roses. They told us how beautiful it would be, things to look out for but never how hard it could be. Just "if you have any issues call the ABA". I would have rather half the session be spent on the dramas you can have and how to deal with them
