Leaky Boob On One Side
When I feed baby with my right boob, my left boob will always let down a lot of milk. But when I feed on my left, my right boob never leaks. Any mummy has the same condition, is it strange?
don't worry babe, it does happen. can use the Hakka to collect the let down. :)
- Hi. My left boob is 1-2 cups smaller than my right. However it still produces milk. It does not get full/engorged as well unlike my right boob. Pls advise how to make it even. Tried letting LO latch more often on left boob but it still doesn't work.Anonymous
- My left boob will get engorge every 4-5 hourly, while my right boob doesn't get engorged even after 6 hours of not expressing. Whenever I express, my right boob always yields lesser than my left. The yield will probably be only half as compared to my left yield. How do I make sure both sides yields the same amount. I didn't have this problem when I just began bf-ing my newborn who is turning 3 months old soon.
Try latching the right breast more often instead of the left. After pumping you can apply cold compress over the left breast to moderate the supply. Apply warm compress over the right breast before latching or pumping to facilitate the flow. I have been on tandem breastfeeding and both breasts do not yield the same amount. It really depends on baby's needs. During warmer days my baby will prefer the left breasts and before sleep, she will prefer the right breast. I was told the left breast is water and the right breast is rice. When I looked at my ebm, the left side is usually more watery and right side yield is thicker.Anonymous
- I have been pumping however seems that right boob yields more milk than left one. sometimes no milk came out at all from the left boob. Anyone has experience this b4? what should i do?
My left boobs produce a lot more than my right one as well. The max i get is about 60-70ml for right one while the left one can go about 160ml, depends. I guess might be due to inverted nipple. I think it is normal, just that when it is clogged duct, it’s gonna be very pain.gwerlin
