One important point to remember is that breast milk will never be insufficient for your baby. It is all on demand and supply. As vigorously your baby will suck, reflexly there will be good milk flow. Make sure that in one sitting you should give feeding from one breast only. Initial milk ( fore milk ) is bit watery and it satisfies the thirst of the baby, and after milk( hind milk) is thick and satisfies the hunger of the baby, so if you are changing your breast in one sitting, you are just satisfying his thirst, and he will still be hungry, and thus cry again after short interval. Don't ever give bottle feed ( nipple).
Do not worry about inequal breast size and milk flow.
