He sounds fine. I think we as moms look for problems that aren't there. Follow his cues. If he seems happy doing that, he's likely fine.

And yes, you can nurse entirely on one side per feed, I've done that with DD2 since she was a newbie. I will warn you that you'll occasionally look lopsided when it's been a while between feeds, but that doesn't happen so much now that my baby is older.
This! I'm usually crazy engorged for about a week after my milk comes in. I know it seems like you'll be in pain and have too much milk forever, but it will get better! Congrats on your new little love!
Wife to the love of my life, and Mama to four precious little ones and a baby coming in October!
