Q.

Breasts different sizes from breastfeeding

When I started breastfeeding, my son preferred drinking on left breast. As a result, the milk in the right breast has almost dried up and is a bit smaller than the left breast.

Will the left breast (which he drinks from) go back to it's normal size when I stop breastfeeding or will it always be bigger?

Your breasts will return to normal when you stop breastfeeding.
