differences in size is normal don't worry.....you need to feed baby from both sides dear...keep trying baby will be comfortable with other side as well but make sure you should give from both sides. let's see what our doctor Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa say....

Hello...
It’s common for one breast to be larger than the other, and for one to produce more as well. The two breasts are independent, and aren’t like mirror images of each other. That’s why most moms who double pump will get different amounts from each breast, and also so many babies develop a preference for one side over another.. Women with only one functioning breast can still produce plenty of milk for their babies. Babies will take what they need, and your breasts will respond to supply and demand. There is a small percentage of women who continue to have problems with engorgement on one side even after 6 weeks, and some of them decide to let the problem breast dry up completely and nurse exclusively on one side. try cabbage leaf compresses on the larger breast and see if that is helpful.
