I'm planning on BF my son, but why is it that one of my breast leak more than the other one? It has just started doing it. Is that normal? One of them hurt so bad, but I don't really have any pain in the other one. I was told that I could take a warm shower and press on my breast when they hurt and that would help with the pain and it has. ALOT!

I thought maybe I was an odd ball or something. It's just started doing that within the last week or so. I want to breastfeed my son. This will be my first attempt so I'm hoping I will do good with it.

Normal. And once your milk comes in one side usually lets down faster than the other, and one side usually gives you more milk when your pumping too. No worries! =)

Hello. I've been breastfeeding my daughter for 21/2 years!!! And for some reason I have always had more milk in my right breast. It lets down harder and there is just more of it! My right breast is also a little larger than the right :(.

My right one is the one that leaks more than the other. I just thought it was a little weird.

Thank you! That makes me feel better. I was hoping there wasn't something wrong with me! I had a friend tell me with them doing that I wouldn't be able to breastfeed and I was devastated when she told me that.

Well, don't believe her lol. It's normal. You will find that someone will always tell you you can't or shouldn't breastfeed for whatever reason or the other. Pay them no mind, even if your left breast fell off completely you could still breastfeed your baby exclusively with your right! That's probably not going to happen, so I think you're good! ; )

haha I was feeling self concious about it too. This is my first so I am really nervous about the whole breastfeeding thing all together!

Great! Thank you! That makes me feel better. I have a DRs appt Wednesday so I was going to ask him then, but ever since she told me that I have been so devastated.

You're not alone on the really nervous. I'm so scared I won't be able to do it or something will go wrong or my Son won't latch right or I will just get upset and give up.
