did your baby prefer a side? my daughter preferred the right side more and it was hard to get her to switch evenly so my right side produced more milk than the other and ended up being bigger than the left side...it sucks but no one ever told me.

Yes!!! Mine have always been a little different, but since I stopped breastfeeding, they are even worse! Of course, I'm probably the only one that notices, but it still stinks! I mean, I could stand for both of them to shrink some because I have plenty to share...haha!

I'd say you're probably stuck with them... I noticed at the start of puberty that my left started to grow a little before the right, even tho I'm the only one that can tell, it's not really too bad unless you're a whole cup or two different. I think breastfeeding really takes a toll on you, and the only positive change I got was that I'm permanently a cup bigger, :p

@Lindsey- i had a problem breastfeeding him from that side in the beginning so it didnt produce as much. I asked my husband and after he looked he noticed but again he said he doesnt care. But it really is noticable because one still is producing milk, we are talking a whole cup size here. Thats why Im hoping once its out of milk the difference wont be as bad

I had this same issue and I was complaining about it to my husband, who looked very closely at my breasts and announced, "Hey, that one IS bigger, huh!" Proof that men, even men that love boobs, really don't notice anything. LOL
But it got less obvious, one is still a bit bigger, but really, unless you're a nudist, I don't think anyone will notice. :)

its really very common to have different sized boobs. i think its acctually less common to find boobs that are the same size, so dont worry about id, you could always buy one of those silicone (chicken fillets) that go inside ur bra if it makes you that self conscious, dont worry too much they will stop changing but they may not go back to being exactly the same as they were before pregnacy and breast feeding x

I only stopped about 3 weeks ago, slowly weaning him off it. And the one that is smaller(right) isnt producing anything anymore while the other(left) one still produces some. So im hoping that when the left one stops all together they will be the same seize again

Well, I cannot speak for everyone but for me it stayed that way... It is definitely not as bad as it was but still there.

how long ago did you stop breastfeeding? It took a good 6 months for my breasts to stop changing after I stopped... so there might still be some changes to come.
