My left breast has always had a little less supply than the right, and my DD (now 14.5 mo) has usually preferred the right. About a month ago I noticed that the left side was completely "deflated". It looks so crazy, like there's nothing in it! The right one is still normal.
I can hand express a drop of milk out of the left, but no real flow comes out. My husband and I spent the night away for our anniversary about a month ago and I didn't pump and the left side still didn't fill up at all (the right did quite a bit).
So I'm at a loss here. I still offer the left, but much less frequently because it hurts a little when she nurses and she's not real interested. I'm not planning on stopping anytime soon and I'm concerned about how lopsided I look. It's really obvious in tanks, etc., and even bras don't fit right because there's such a huge size difference.
Has this happened to anyone? Will it eventually go back to looking like a normal breast? Is this what my boobs are going to look like when I'm done nursing?? I was pregnant with this baby while still nursing DD1, so I haven't had a break from nursing in 4 years and I'm wondering what to expect.
Thanks a lot!!
