Have been ebf my 15 week dd. After difficult first few days seems to have been going ok, but in the last week or so it seems to be much more difficult to feed her from the left side, feels like not enough is coming out, but sprays when I squeeze, so there's definitely milk in there. I keep having to switch her to the other side. I am still trying to feed off the left, but wondered if this was normal at all? It's also a bit uncomfortable but not really painful, no red patches or blockages as far as I can tell

I had the same problem with my ds. My health visitor said it was because babys tend to prefer one breast better than the other and that maybe my ds was feeding better from one side which led to one side being fuller than the other.I don't know if this is true tho! If you concerned you could speak to you HV. HTH
