Re: Help! One side not producing well!

Most women produce more milk in their left breast -- my theory is the majority of us are right-handed and often we put our babies on the left breast if we are wanting to do anything while nursing -- talking on the phone, eating, writing, etc.

Have you ever had mastitis in the low-producing breast? That can also impair output.
