painful breastfeeding resulting in favoring 1 breast.

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
When I was breast feeding Candra, I had some painful problems along the way resulting me in favoring 1 breast for a few weeks. My mom got quite angry with me because she told me that 1 breast will be bigger than the other. O.k, I know that 1 breast will differ insize from the other. I told my mom this and she said that their supposed to be the same size or not be different in size by that much.
My right breast is noticably different by at least 1 cup and it's difficult to find a proper fitting bra.
Do any of you have this problem?

all women have a difference in size just like one foot is a bit bigger than the other - its normal

I have to say that if I look at myself in the mirror from my left side and then from my right side my left boob looks fuller, my right one is a little deflated looking in comparison. Thankfully they both look ok as I look down on them Blink

Are you still breast feeding? If you are experiencing pain in one breast I would recommend seeing a doctor to make sure everything is ok. Regarding the size however, it is quite normal to have slightly different breasts - hopefully the only problem is cosmetic and you could try filling the bra with the smaller breast in with breast enhancers (Chicken fillets!) to deal with that.
