Breastfeeding - Boobies only work one side!

I guess the subject says it all...:) I have an inverted nipple on the right side. My LO has never been able to latch on that particular side. So the left boobie has been contributing all the breastmilk be it pumping or direct feeding. My LO is 5 months old and I have been pumping my right side ever since she was born to only see a few drops of milk dripping. Sometimes none. I am not giving up. Anyone with similar situation? And to make things worse, because I have been breastfeeding and pumping only on my working left side boobie, it's now much bigger than the right side....

You can get the inverted nipple working. Medela makes some sort of breast shield to help inverted nipples come out. Just google it. I have heard success with a product like this. Just keep trying momma! And if it doesn't work, good job trying. Left boobie can handle it!
