My daughter is 15 months old and we are breast feeding on demand and at night as we as we are bed-share/co-sleep together. I have smaller breasts anyway and am of a slim build (think Winona Ryder) at a 102 to 105 pounds and am wondering if any other moms get one breast significantly smaller than the other due to my daughter preferring the one side more than other. She does nurse on the other side and there still is milk in that one. Does anyone think my daughter should be nursing both sides to get the milk and its benefits or is nursing a little less on one side okay and nursing a lot from the other ok? I do gently remind her there is the other one to try and she does for a little bit only to go back to the preferred one.
I jokingly say she prefers the right breast because it is making chocolate and the left is making vanilla milk or the flow is different or something...
Any thoughts, any others like this greatly appreciated
