Mom Reveals What Happens When Your Baby Loves Eating From One B*ob More Than The Other

Will they go back?!

Abbie Herbert happily welcomed her first daughter, Poppy, six months ago. Excited about giving her best for her girl, she’s been breastfeeding the baby.

Because she seems to feel comfortable with one side, Poppy has been enjoying her meals from her right breast.

Which has… led to that one side enlarge disproportionately.

In a half-funny, half-worried atmosphere, Abbie shared on her Tiktok, “Poot loves to breastfeed, but she’s very particular about what side she likes. So, she’s right side. I said, ‘Girl, right side is yours; you stay on the right — you love it. It is yours.'”

“…Well, someone forgot to remind me what could happen if you only let your baby feed on one b**b.”

She continued describing what’s happening, “This is hard as a rock…it’s not an implant — it’s my boob.”

She asked people if this was normal and what are the chances of it deflating back to at least the same size.

It appears that Poopy enjoys one side more than the other, and she became more used to letting her feed from there.

Abbie explains that her left side hasn’t dried up, “My left side still provides a ton of milk, but for some reason, the right just gets super big and hard.”

What makes it more hilarious is that her breast literally would inflate when she wakes up because Poppy sleeps for 12 hours straight at night. So they’ll go from this…

Breastfeeding expert Dr. Karen Miles shares that it’s actually common for newborns and infants to like a specific side more than the other. It could be because “it’s harder to latch on” the other side.

@abbieherbert_ Going 12 hours without nursing 🙂 will this ever go back to normal? #momsoftiktok #momlife #mom #babiesoftiktok #babytok #momtok #nursing #surprise #react #reaction #help #fyp #4u #relatable #notajoke original sound – NYC.Treyvonnnn🤬

“Sometimes a baby will be more comfortable being held on one side than the other. If your baby seems to suddenly prefer one side, it may be because something hurts him. Maybe he has an ear infection in one ear, or maybe the side that he was just immunized on is tender, for example.”

But it doesn’t matter if she has to see her breast inflate and deflate because “a fed baby is best”!
