    Eventually the left side will stop producing and you will just produce on your right side. I am nursing my 2nd child and with both children, my right breast produces more milk than my left so when I get close to the time of weening my 1st child, I stopped nursing on the left side all together and it "dried up". Be prepared to have one breast significantly bigger than the other!!
