My nursling is 17 months old and my breasts are significantly uneven.  Like one fits perfectly into my bra cup and the other is significantly overflowing out the side and top.  They have been this way for at least a year now.  I'm pretty sure it is due to us both favoring one side (the larger one).  Is there any hope for me?  I try to focus more on the smaller side in hopes of evening them out a little but I have been unsuccessful.  My latest attempt is to nurse on the smaller side anytime she is not going to sleep or overnight.  But it is pretty obvious that the smaller side is also an under producer because she always wants the other side also.  What are the chances they will even out once she weans?  My son nursed until he was 3.5 and I didn't have this problem.  Anyone else gone through this and come out the other side with relatively symmetrical breasts?

I have this too but my breasts of not look uneven! But with both my kids one side will produce a whole ounce more and I've asked others and they say this isn't the case for them... I thought it was normal withy first baby . Then when I had my second I noticed the same Breast produced a ounce more!!!

Mine seem to even out more or less right around 2 years, which has been when I am pregnant with the next dc and my milk supply tanks.

Thanks for the replies.  To clarify, I am not at all concerned about my supply.
