My DD is 7 months old now. When i feed her on my left the breast will start out firm and then eventually get very soft, like it is empty. But my right one will start out firm, and only get a little softer no matter how much or how long she sucks. What is going on? Is my milk drying up on that side?Answer Question

If it is staying hard, it may be that you have a blocked duct, so the amount of milk that you normally get out of it is being blocked. When you look at your nipple, can you see any pinpoint-sized white dots? If you hand express milk, can you tell that there is an area where milk isn't coming out the way you'd expect it to?
Alas, our breasts do not get firm once our milk has dried up. Quite the opposite!
