Just over the last week or so it seems Waylon is favoring feeding off my left side. I say that to mean that when it's time to nurse on the right side he's off and on it the whole time he's eating, where as with the other side he takes it just like always.
Is there a reason he's doing this, and is there anything I can do about it? I'm afraid my supply is starting to drop a little on that side from him not taking as much from it.
Any ideas?
TIA!

A lot of babies favor one side versus another. Kylie always favored my left side and I think it was because it was my over-producing side. I just pumped the other side after she would nurse on that side so to keep production up. It might be that you don't have as forceful of a letdown on that side or it might be that that side has too much of a forceful letdown, kwim?

Yeah, I see what you're saying. I guess I'll just continue as we are doing for now and I'll just use that side to pump on, too, to keep up production. I'm trying to get a stock so that I can actually let someone watch him for a little while for me one of these days! wacko.gif biggrin.gif
