Feeding query

My baby is 7.5 months old. He takes feed from left breast only. Right breast is not hard but milk supply is there but less. Is it harmful not to feed from this breast even though I don't feel any hardness.

No it's not harmful. Milk comes only when the baby sucks. That is why u have less milk on the other breast. Don't worry it's not harmful

It is better to feed from both breast alternatively. May be due to some nipple problem he is unable to suck so see it may be inverted nipple. You may express the milk and feed him.
