Has anyone had trouble with low milk supply only in one breast? My baby has latching issues so I've been double-pumping after every feeding (she's only 9 days old so I had to start her on formula as a supplement, but in the past couple of days have been able to provide enough milk to only have to fall back on formula once or twice, and mostly because she's hit a growth spurt and is ravenous). I'm averaging about two ounces from one breast at each session and am lucky to get a whole ounce from the other. Again, I've only been at this for about a week so I'm not sure if this is common or not. I've tried massaging and a hot wash cloth but nothing seems to be working much. Has anyone else encountered this problem? And is this something that may work itself out the longer I pump?
