My right boob doesn't respond as well to my pump anymore...lol. I pump, and massage wule pumping, massage before, and after and try again. I only get about 2-4 ounces depending and my boob still feels quite solid, so I know there is more in there, lol.

Now my left boob...yeah, once I'm done, it's like a deflated balloon, lol.

I'm just going to have to have my daughter more on the right to keep it emptying.

And please don't go "that's normal". It is not for me. I am a massive producer, always have been with both my children. I'm not one of those who has ever struggled to get 5-15oz per pumping session. Not until I went to work with my son and simply lost my milk supply due to the inability to pump at work.

Well, if I can't say "that's normal", then I have nothing to say. lol

I over produce too, before pumping I would put a warm cloth on my breast. I would pump 6-8 per breast at first.(A lot of pain) and later on it was 3-6 per breast. I was eping for 11 mts. but the warm cloth and massaging helped alot

I think she gets 2-4 from each breast.

I actually get more than 2-4. Lately, my right boob just doesn't want give out more, but I'm still full.
In the morning, I usually get 9-11 out of my left and 6-8 from my right.

Are u sure that everything on your pump is functioning correctly? Sometimes if things aren't just so or not tight enough, the suction can vary and may not extract as much milk.

For most mortals that's normal. If it's not for you, then I'd be taking a close look at the pump.

But also understand that EVERY nursing experience will be different and what happened before means diddly for the future. I have a feeling this is actually your new normal.

Thanks for posting this, because the exact same thing is happening to me right now. I don't think it's my pump because the left is still going like a champ. It's making me crazy though because I swear the right boob still feels full and I can't get it to go down. I'm doing the same thing for the moment - nursing him more on the right. Maybe it's clogged ducts or something so they haven't been able to empty. I'm also trying warm compresses. GL!
