Is there a way to slow down milk production on one side?

My right boob is always full it seems. The baby will eat and it will be full in an hour and be so painful. I usually end up pumping to relieve it but then that just makes it think I need more milk, right? She eats every four hours pretty much so three hours is too long to wait. My left side, she will empty and then right around the time for her to eat again it starts to feel really full, right on schedule. Is there anyway to slow down the right side?

  • Just slow down the use of it a little bit. Pump only enough to take the edge off.
