Breasts now different sizes

Anyone else had this?

I'm guessing it's because I tend to favour the one side over the other as it's easier to get other things done at the same time - like eating.

Can I do anything about this? If I start each feed on the smaller side will it balance out eventually?

I didn't have this problem pre breastfeeding.

Mine are the same and DS2 doesn't seem to favour one over the otherhmm

My milk supply is much better in one breast than the other despite all efforts to even things out (like feeding from breast with less milk first). Just hoping things will even out again once i stop!?

I had this too, one side was complete rubbish and smaller than the other - started in pregnancy.

Went back to normal when I gave up (well, when I gave up altogether - I gave up on the rubbish side quite a few weeks before the good side).

I really can't tell the difference now.

Just to add, I tried starting on the rubbish side and it didn't make any difference, except DD got pissed off because she knew she could get fed quicker from the other side.
