OK, I admit it. I am in this predicament entirely of my own fault. My daughter is now 8 months old and I have been feeding her almost exclusively on my right side for probably at least 4 months now, therefore I have a 2-cup size difference between my breasts. I occasionally take up pumping throughout the day for a day or two (small side only) in a lame attempt to increase milk production in my neglected breast so I will even out, but then give up when I don't see results right away.
Has anyone else had this problem and corrected it? Is there any hope at this point, or should I just give up and try to show less favoritism next time around? If anyone has bounced back from this, how long did it take to get back into full-on milk producing shape?
