Is it normal for one breast to make less milk than the other? I had a hunch this was happening and it was confirmed when I started pumping. I used an electric double breast pump and in the same amount of time, one breast pumped 4 oz. while the other only made 1 oz. I've also noticed that my son will feed off that breast for a much longer time and then get really antsy, pull himself off and start crying. I can still express milk from that breast, but it's very little and seems to be coming out of only one hole. So I'll move him to the other breast, and he starts guzzling as if he's starving; that breast seems to have 3 or 4 good streams. Could it just be the flow out of one is just too slow? If so, is there anything I can do about it?
