    Pumping is not a very good indictation of supply so don't feel too worried. Try him with a dream feed later to help clear out that side, maybe?

    Hi Lucia, I am only a couple of weeks behind you and my left boob doesn't give as much as the right when I express - really weird actually! But my LO feeds from it fine and is always satisfied after a feed, so I don't think it's anything to worry about. I have noticed my supply has started to regulate now and this has made my breasts feel less full.
    If you're still worried, get your LO to feed more from the one that feels empty as this should help boost supply too x
