As I have been banging on about it for ages, I'm sure you know I'm still b/feeding dd2 who is nearly one. The problem is, she only likes one side. I'm quite big anyway, but now have one boob like a nice large grapefruit and one like a giant watermelon! I honestly look like a freak. I wear crop tops and stuff the big one in which evens things up a bit when I'm dressed, but I'm a good three cup sizes bigger on one sid ethan the other

Once I stop are they likely to even up again? Or will I just have to have another baby and hope he/she likes both sides the same?

How come she only likes one side? you must be in pain on the other side? I would have thought it would even out once you get into a routine with it but are you producing less on the side that dd is feeding from? I suppose expressing would help but you would still produce as its still being taken? sorry not much help just loads of questions!

When I was breastfeeding I used to almost forcefeed dd2's on the other side. Couldn't bear the feeling of fullness. It was soooo painful. Don't you feel uncomfortable.

....I would have leaked everywhere too. Not sure what this does to your milk production if you only feed from one side though.

They will even up when you stop. I used to fill out the other side with breast pads!

Hi, summ, from when she was about six weeks she has only liked one side - don't ask me why. I hardly produce at all on one side and have more or less used one boob for ten months! The hv said this was okay, so have just gone with it. I don't get any pain apart from feeling lopsided!

Thanks, milward, I really hope so!

Sparkler, its' as though I've stopped b/feeding for one boob and not the other. I don't think I could get the one she doesn't like going again even if I wanted to!
