My right side fills up more than my left, how can I fill them evenly?

Question:

My right side fills up more then my left if it even fills at all. What can I do to help them fill evenly?

Answer:

 Lynnie, What you describe isn't at all uncommon. Most breastfeeding moms notice that one of their breasts will produce more milk than the other. As long as the total production is keeping up with baby's needs and baby is gaining weight it doesn't pose an issue, other than feeling lopsided . You can try boosting your supply in the breast that makes less by pumping on that side after feeding sessions. Best of luck!
