Does anyone have one boob that's more full than the other? My left boob is CONSTANTLY more full than the other. I've been starting every feed on that side to get it drained, but I'm worried I'm making the problem worse?

So I'm over a week in on a schedule trying to get my milk to come in, it was recommended at the hospital that every 2.5-3 hrs I breastfeed DS, then we give him formula, then I pump. The whole cycle takes over an hour. I've been doing it religiously- and we just got a baby scale to see if he is getting much at al from me. Last feeding he only got .6oz. I'm getting so discouraged. I felt like my milk was slowly starting to come in, too. My boobs are heavier and one of them feels crampy at times. They are firm the loosen up when DS eats. I feel like each day that passes it is more and more unlikely and it's making me really sad! Not only is pumping after every middle of the night feed getting exhausting but also I'm sad to potentially lose this connection to him.
Another one here for just nursing bra and underwear (especially with the night sweats going on!)today I got DS to nurse on BOTH sides, for a full feed without the nipple shields!!! Forgot to bring them out with me and he got hungry, so I figured "well, I guess we'll try it!" And he must've been so hungry he didn't even bat an eye!!
Success today! Molly gained 4 oz in 2 days and is .2 oz away from birth weight. We had to start supplementing and I started pumping my foremilk and it seems to have made a huge difference!! I'm ecstatic. Happy momma even though I got thrown up on before going to dr.
