Lefty barely "works" Please help!!

Hey  ladies,

my son prefers my right breast, so it is now my over producer.  When I'm at work I can get a total of 6-7 oz from the right but barely 1/2-1 oz from the left, I have tried forcing him on it (he takes it in a sleepy haze) and i have power pumped it, I am at loss.  What can I dod to fix it??

  • Most times one is an under-producer.  You can try starting him on that side first and pumping that side while nursing on the other.
