Breastfeeding mama here. It was one tough month in. We are now 3 months in and for the last month my baby has only wanted my right breast. The left breast has always been more challenging to latch. I still offer it and she can get milk. I think the flow in my left breast is to fast. She cry’s on it. So then I move her to my right and she calmly eats. Maybe as she gets older she will take the left side again? Is there such thing as a preference for a baby?

Krystal I have been buying all the milky mama products my 9 month old is already weaning requires more than I can give her and she doesn’t seem to want much milk anymore she is eating more and more solids and I am pumping every 2-3 hours at work and mostly get 3-4 oz a day total. I feel defeated. I wanted to nurse til she was 1 and I’m having a really hard time accepting the reality. I am an under producer I have bought different pumps. Flanges pumping accessories and I only saw a mild difference for about a month, I was on birth control from March when I started my first period since pregnancy. But now I feel that I have nothing left to give her and I have been really depressed.

3-4 oz per session? Girls, I pump through out the day and I'm lucky if I get 30ml at the end of the night. I've tried everything. She's not even 7 months yet. Feel like giving up. I wanted to feed until she was 2

I'm so sorry, don't give up. Get you doctor's opinion. Do you feel like the milky mama products work? My son is 4mons and I'm getting about 3 to 4oz each breast and still feel defeated. Good luck

Do you have any advice for weaning off nipple shields. I feel I have tried everything, skin to skin, taking it away during feeds quickly, latching basics, different positions. My little one just gets so frustrated. She is 19 days old. X

I'm not a professional but for my daughter the magic moment was when I rubbed lots of milk on the breast before latching her x
