Producing more milk in one breast then the other

Don't worry about producing more on one than the other. Perfectly normal and common! The best way to get out all that extra milk is to stimulate that breast with your baby's mouth. Only your baby can get all that milk out---better than any pump! If it's hard to put baby on the breast, like it is for me, just massage the breasts a lot and be positive! Eventually, they'll catch up to each other :)

Yay..I'm not the only one..lol My left produces at least double the right does. My pedi said it was most likley because I favor that one, put her on that one more but I know that's not the case because I make sure to alternate EVERY time. When I pump I'll easily get 3-4oz in a few minutes and only 1-1.5 from the right. This has also made the left a little bigger all the time too.. The past couple weeks I've been feeding a little more on the smaller side and can tell it's gotten a little better but still not equal.
