View Full Version : a nursing production question

03-13-2008, 02:33 PM
I don't have twins but as I was pumping the other morning I was noting how my more productive boob this time around is my right one. With DS it was my left. I usually get around 2 oz more from one side than the other.

When you're nursing twins, do you produce the same amount on both sides?

For some reason, I really want to know this.

I always produced more milk on one side (at least when I pumped,) and I EBF my twins for 13 months. I usually tandem nursed too, so I just made sure that I alternated sides frequently.

It doesn't seem like I produce the same amount on both sides. One side is definitely working harder this pregnancy. But the other side was more productive for my first 2 babies. Hmm...I didn't even think about that till you mentioned it.

Well, you know you needed one more thing to think about didn't you? :wavey:
