Foremilk/hindmilk imbalance only feed off of one breast! Solutions!

Hi ladies, I could really use some help and advice. My baby is 2 1/2 months old. Is very healthy and well except for one thing, her green mucusy poo. Every once and a while her poo looks mustardy normal but usually it's green with mucus. My lactation consultant and pediatrician say it could be an allergy but I honestly don't thing it is. I've been reading a lot on block feeding to get my oversupply under control. However, I do have one problem with doing that. My left breast will hardly produce any milk and my right is the side that produces all the milk my baby needs. I've tried getting that side to make more but I'm lucky if I can get 1oz out, it's usually about 1/2 and oz. So since I can really only feed my baby from one side, how do I fix this without loosing the supply that she needs? Please help, I hate seeing her poo like this and seeing her uncomfortable.

Stop feeding exclusively from one side. Switch on EVERY OTHER FEEDING. You may only be pumping 1 oz, but babies are a lot more efficient at sucking than your pump is. Keep up the good work! Not sure about the poop. Maybe it is an allergy after all.
