  • Welcome to motherhood. Your boobs will NEVER be the same.

  • This is all normal fallout from pregnancy (that's what makes the changes.) We are not symmetrical beings. You can offer the smaller side more, just as you are. It's the correct and really the only action.

    You will likely always notice a difference; I do. My husband says I'm nuts.

    Everyone gets a difference between their sides. How much difference varies from woman to woman... you got the deluxe package! Many moms who get that find they need to stuff the smaller side.

  • There is no solution aside from surgery. It is not the breastfeeding, it was the pregnancy hormones.

  • Keep in mind that your breasts will change ANYWAY, despite pregnancy. It's a consequence of living in Earth's gravity and getting older. Unless you die young or get the chance to live in a non-gravity environment forever, nature's gonna get you!
