So vain.... help? Awkward 5 kids; 2 angel babies; St Cloud, MN, United States 4588 posts

It doesn't matter while I can wear hoodies 100% of the time but the weather is warming up unusually early this year.
Ds is breastfed and he prefers the right b**b. He will latch and nurse on the left for about 30 seconds then he starts clawing at my clothes and flipping himself around to get to the right side. I just give in. Whatever. 
My left b**b is probably a D cup right now and my right b**b spills out of all of my bra's the largest being DD. 
I know feeding baby is best and such but now that it is warming up I can't stand being so freaking lopsided. I have only been offering the left side most of the time for the past week and besides ds being more willing to nurse on that side nothing is changing. I am still very lopsided. I'm thinking of weaning. He is 9 months. Does that make me a selfish and vain mom? I feel guilty just considering weaning for that reason but.... my confidence is completely gone atm and having even sized b**bs would probably help

Have you thought about trying those little jiggly b**b inserts?

Have you considered pumping the left side?

I have but my letdown is stubborn on that side and I rarely get more than 2 Oz from it no matter how much I pump

This happened to me when DS was a year old. My left side completely stopped producing but my right continued and he was still BFing. I ended up with a DD on my right and a B on my left. He was only night feeding then so we ended up weening. We were both ready to be done by that point. It was ridiculous.

I wonder if a different hold would kinda trick him into thinking he was eating from the preferred b**b so the poor, neglected b**b can get some attention

i'd buy ponchos, haha. or wear less form fitting things to make it less obvious. or just shamelessly stuff my bra. either that or just wear a compression type sports bra, it might even them out?

DS takes the left more than the right . I find different holds helps him eat the booby he isnt to fond of.

My DD prefers my right one when I'm holding her but will nurse like a champ on the left if she's laying down on her side.
