Is it normal for one side to get full a lot and the other to not get full? My left side like is never full and that is her preferred side. I had to pump the left side because she would never feed(it was flat) but I got a nipple shield so now I'm feeding her on both sides.

How long does frozen breast milk last? I have some frozen since I started pumping in late feb/ beginning of March. Not sure if it's still good?

Thanks guys! Anyone have any tips on breast feeding babies with teeth? She started biting me mostly on my right nipple. I think she only does it when she's mad when my milk doesn't come out right away. But now it hurts from her teeth rubbing against it and I can see 2 lines from her bottom teeth "/

First, I'm so excited to say that we'll officially hit our 3 year mark of nursing in a week :)
We're currently expecting #2 and my son is frustrated about my milk. I know my milk and body is going through changes with this pregnancy- but I don't want to not be able to nurse my son since he's not ready to wean yet.

HELP? TIPS/ADVICE?

It's normal for one side to be bigger than the other or produce more. Sometimes there's not much you can do about it to change it. Just try to consistently nurse from both sides.

He still nurses quite often.
Morning, after meals, before nap, and before bed.
