Hi, I have a 3 month old son named Nathan and ever since I began breast feeding, he has just NOT liked feeding from my left breast. My right breast just always has seemed to produce more milk than the left so he's frequently fussed and just been less than happy to be at the left breast. Well, basically what has happened is that about 2 months ago while breast feeding, my son chomped his gums down on the tip of my left nipple and it actually began to bleed! Because of this, I chose to feed less on the left breast so it could heal, once the breast healed, things were okay and I was trying to get the milk supply up in that breast, a few times since that injury he's chomped down on the SAME nipple (its as if he is biting down out of frustration that it doesn't produce enough milk) although there's been no more blood, my left breast just doesn't seem to be making any milk and there for it looks almost a full cup size smaller than my right breast that is STILL going strong making breast milk. We've been giving my son soy formula to make up for what he isn't getting and he seems to be doing fine. But now I am worried about my breasts being two different sizes. Once I get the right breast to stop producing milk, does anyone know if my breasts will be even again?
