I think that is pretty normal for one side to produce more then the other.

This is totally normal. I talked to a lactation consultant about this at one point. It's not anything to be concerned about.

That is perfectly normal, so don't worry yourself over it. Take the situation to your advantage and use the one that produces more to build your milk bank
