    Hi, my lo is nearly 7months old and I've been breastfeeding every day since birth. Though when she started on solids the milk feeds dropped and now I'm down to 3 a day.. My question is that my right boon for the last few days has been smaller in size to my left, feels always empty and when I try to hand express hardly anything comes out. What's going on? Is it drying up or something? Please help, I'm really stressing, I wanted to feed her to a year but well I don't know if I'm going to be able to, anyone please help. How do I know if I'm srying up? Or what else could it be please?

    Your supply will drop cos your LO isn't drinking as much, but the chances of drying up while your still actively feeding is slim to none.

    If your only feeding a few times a day are you using both sides equally - if you always have a tendency to start/use one side then the supply in the other may drop a bit more. X


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(
