This is a discussion on EMB one side lesser within the Breastfeeding Mothers Support Group forum, part of the MummySG Special Group category; I started pumping breast milk since 09/02, my right breast has established 40-50ml each session but my left breast only 15-20ml. ...
I started pumping breast milk since 09/02, my right breast has established 40-50ml each session but my left breast only 15-20ml. Is this normal?
same here too. all along, my left breast has been producing less than the right. our body is never perfectly symmetrical on the left and right, so i think it's no different for breast milk production. =) keep breastfeeding!
thanks for the advice. Now more or less each side about the same volume though at times still differ a little.
me too.... now can only pump 20ml on the left side and 60ml on the right side. Right side is also bigger than left side.
my left side 50ml right side only 10ml.. tried to feed more on the right side but it never increases supply! And right side is always leaking!
my left side always have more supply, and my right side always achieve letdown faster..
i'm breastfeeding my #2 kid....still the same as before but i have managed to equaled the output..
posted a link here. I tried this person's method. it worked for me. but I dont't have the time and energy to go all the way.

My EBM quite even on both sides. Each breast around 30-50ml each time. I guess it adds up to 70-100 mother in law in all. I think it does not matter which side gives more, to me the total matters more.

for me , my left side has much more. 50ml on left, 10-20ml on right.and I have to pump my left every 2hrs otherwise it get engorged quite badly..any idea how to reduce engorgement?it's so tiring to keep pumping.
that time my breasts were so engorged i have to pump every 2 hours and use cold compress. now, the supply dipped drastically. i barely meet the demand of my baby.. sigh dont know how now.
