When I had my son, I started noticing at about 3 months that he was favoring my left breast over my right. I didn't really put much thought into it, and by the time he was 6 months old, he had completely stopped nursing on the right side and it dried up. As a result, I was an over flowing D on the left and barely a C on the right. I was SO lopsided and it made me very self conscious. This second time around, I've made sure to offer the right breast often so this doesn't happen again. Well, she is 9 months now and is starting to refuse to nurse on that side :-/ I know my left side is my "milky" side. I'm guessing it's easier to get milk from. When she nurses on that side, she is calm and content. When she nurses on the right, she twists and turns, bites, tries to crawl up me and sometimes squeezes/hit that breast. She gets so frustrated (and so do I). I don't want to end up with lopsided breasts. Well... they already are lopsided, but I mean severely lopsided, like they were with my son.
Any tips on how I can get her to nurse more on that side? She does seem to nurse on it fine at night, but that's because she is sleepy and is mostly just comfort nursing. So I try to make sure to do that. Any other suggestions? Thank you!
