Dear Soumya, yes! Your breast might remain that way though. The degree of the difference would differ once after you are done with feeding your son. The exact result comes up may be a few months after you are done with feeding him. Usually no breasts of a woman are of the same size. There exists some difference all the time. But when situations like yours arises, the size depends on how frequently you feed your kids on each side and also differs depending on the angle. Also it depends on if every time if you continue to feed in the same posture on both the sides. I have got a question for you as well in this context, why is it that you are feeding your son on one side? If it is due to medial reasons then there is nothing much that can be done on this regard other than the doctors. But it is a kind of habit formed due to any other reason other than medical then it is time for you to start feeding him on both the sides and for the same time on both the times. I agree that it is not always possible to do the same, there remains a difference. But make sure that you try to compensate feeding both sides as far as you can.
