Lopsided boobs help!?

When my dd was a baby (born October 2011) we struggled to breastfeed for about 8 months I asked for help from many people the first month or so but then got tired of the constant new random strangers handling my boobs I don't even like hugs from family I hated these random people touching me. I kept telling my dr something had to be wrong my dd honetly seemed to hate nursing! She would nurse very very briefly then scream for a long time. I got told to try different positions eat different things and eventually "she'll eat when she's hungry" but she didn't and she went a few checkups without gaining anything which worried me but they brushed it off. Finally when she was about 8 months old I could hardly get her to nurse at all each nursing session resulted in both of us sobbing and with much support from my neighbor and dear friend I gave up and switched to formula. Dd started growing and all was calm and much less stressful. I found out about six months ago on my own that she has a lip tie and it was most likely making it hard to latch so she was probably crying from frustration poor baby.

Anyway the struggles we had nursing resulted in my once even (or at least as far as I could tell) breasts becoming drastically lopsided. I hoped that once they dried up they would even out again but they didn't and it really bothers me. I tried googling but all I could find was solutions while nursing my question is can I use those same tricks to help even them out when I start nursing my coming child or would the lapse in nursing make them ineffective?

Lol I would have to be the queen of lopsided boobs. My eldest refused to eat from the left side so for 16 months she only used the right side, and I've realised with my other 3 it's been habit to feed almost always from that side except when they were really little and I knew they needed both, and the left would hurt if I didn't. So now my right side is at least 1 size bigger if not more than the left. I say it's 1 of my quirks lol, and I'll fix it with a boob lift 1 day when I get to goal weight

I also have different sized boobs!! Seriously one is a nice C and the other is a tiny A. Lol I want to start pumping the smaller one but I'm too lazy and she would rather just drink from the tap. Lol

Mine weaned 12 years ago. Lopsided to this day. But I grew up in a family where lopsided was a badge of honor and anything else was to be pitied. **grin** (My husband doesn't see the lopsidedness.)

So how do you deal with the whole bra issue? Mine seem about a size different and bra shopping is really frustrating.

I don't wear a bra. I use like sports bras, only they aren't racer back, they are regular tank. I get them at Walmart in a set of 3. I use nursing pads to help with "headlights" lol
