Wonky boobs(3 Posts)
Hello. My EBF baby is 14 weeks old and will really only fed from my left boob. From the minute my milk came in this boob has been bigger but now is an E cup where as other boob is a B (usually I am an A). The difference is really noticeable as the big one is swollen and round and the smaller one flat and floppy 🙁 I have tried to up feeds on that side but only really manage a couple a day. So if I pump it like mad for a few days will it catch up? Obviously I don’t need the milk so will have to keep pumping or it will droop again I assume? Also when I eventually give up breastfeeding will they even out again? Or am I going to be left with one saggy tea bag and one like an orange in a sock 🙈🙁anyone who can offer any advice I would be very grateful. Thank you
No idea on whether you can pump and make them even or whether it will affect how they look long term. Sorry I know that's not much help. If you call one of the BFibg Helplines, they might have some suggestions
Mine only fed from the left for a while, it goes way back in our evolution apparently! We tricked him and with help from some cushions I held him in the same position as for the left, just on the right (so he was lying to the right of my lap if you see what I mean). Maybe give that a go, keep offering.
