Most breastfeeding mamas have experienced a difference in their cup size sometime during their feeding journey.
Sometimes your bub will just prefer one side to the other, other times you'll have one 'super producer' booby while the other just kind of makes up the numbers.
How to even things out?
⭐ Try building your supply on the smaller side by starting each feeding session on that side before swapping over
⭐ Offer the smaller boob a couple of times each nursing session (i.e. at the beginning and again at the end)
⭐ Add a pumping session on the smaller side 1-2 times per day for a couple of days
Just be mindful not to neglect your other boob as you don't want to cause blockages/decrease your supply.
How to encourage bub to take their less favourite boob?
⭐ Try offering the unpopular boob during the night or when bub is sleepy and less likely to fuss
⭐ Start off a feed on the favourite side and, post letdown, quickly swap to the second side
⭐ Observe the flow on the least favourite side; is it too fast for bub or perhaps too slow? Once you've worked that out, work on regulating the speed of supply to suit your bub better.
Happy breastfeeding, mamas!
