Decreased demand: Has your baby been drinking less often from the right breast? Babies often prefer one breast over the other and this can lead to decreased milk supply on one side. Try to offer the right breast more often or pump more often on that side and your supply should pick up. If you are having pain or redness on the right breast , get check out for mastitis.
