  • It happens. Might have to do with teething or a possinle ear infection. Offer offer offer. Pump when it's refused. And overall...don't sweat it. Nearly all babies have a preference.

  • My little girl was the same way. It got to the point where my left boob was bigger and produced way more milk, lol.

  • My son has hated nursing on my right side since birth. He's 9mo now and happy and healthy nursing just on my left side. I don't think he's nursed right side in Months! Granted my left side is a D cup and my right is a B there's really nothing wrong with it.. or him.. it's just what he preferred.

  • WOW just when you think your alone being uneven......My lil girl won't eat from the left side...I am also a D on the left and almost an A on the right now......all I can say is pump your lil heart out and hope they stay somewhat even.......she stopped around 3 months too....before that They both produced the same amount....GL and happy pumping
