Lopsided Breasts

i am BF my 2 week old and have noticed one breast always feels fuller and is noticeably bigger than the other. When I start a feed with the smaller breast, I end up offering him the other one to finish the feed. If I start with the bigger one, he has had enough with just one breast. He's gaining weight really well so I am not concerned about him but just about whether I have a lower supply to one breast and how to remedy this or prevent the supply dropping?
Thanks for advice!

Try starting more feeds with the smaller breast. I didn't think to try and correct this early enough and I'm now lopsided whatever I do!

What Japhrimel said, or you could express from the smaller one while/after you feed from the big one.
