Q&A: Why Are My Breasts Lopsided?

One of my breasts always seems fuller — is this normal?

Rest easy. You are, in fact, normal. None of us are totally symmetrical. Plus, babies (and moms) often wind up feeding more frequently on one breast than the other, which can raise your supply on that side and make you a little lopsided. If your breast size is bugging you, make an effort to feed baby a little extra on the smaller side to help even out your supply. (Pumping the smaller side can help too.)
