Uneven supply
Sat, 09-22-2012 - 8:06pm
Hey ladies. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced an uneven supply between your breasts. The two have always been really close in production, but over the last two weeks the amount I get from the right has really dropped off. I almost never see a spray and even with compressions, massage, and heat applied I struggle to empty it. I have tried having my baby feed on that side at least every other day once if not once a day. That sems to help for the next one or two pumps but then it goes right back to the way it was. I have dropped down to almost half of what I get from the other and have to pump an extra ten minutes or so to get it. When I am done pumping, my right side still seems like it has milk in it and it is leaking slightly. I have replaced the membranes also. should I try a different size on that side or something? It just seems strange to me that it won't empty and that it has only been doing this for the last few weeks. I'm open to suggestions! Thank you!

Could you have a hidden clog? Usually that is what affects my supply like that, then once it lets go, all is back to normal.
