    hey ladies,

    i noticed recently (mainly when im in the shower) that my left areola is getting a little darker around the normal border ( which i know is expected) but my right one seems to look the same as it did before. the pigmented area on that one isn;t really spreading out like the left one is... does this mean that my right boob isn't gonna work??? is it a dud?

    I have never heard or read anything about the color of your areola being a determining factor in milk production.

    Pigment in your nipple (or lack of) doesn't mean it's a dud. From what I understand, your nipples get darker during pregnancy so that that when the baby is aiming for your nipple, your darkened areolas act as a bull's eye bc he/she can only see about 12" away right after birth.
