Re: Which side did I use last???

We nurse on the left side during the day (cuz I'm right handed) and on the right side at night ( I sleep on my right side) USUALLY..sometimes I switch it up...now that she's older. But when she was little bitty I did the squeeze test too!

I got a nursing bracelet this time (ebay) and really liked it at first. Now that he's a little older, I tend to forget to mark the time, but I try to remember to swap wrists as I swap sides so I can remember that. But the squeeze test always works, too!

I would do one breast for 3-4 hours, then switch. That way it was easy to tell which is full and which is not, and also baby got lots of the fatty hind milk!

I have a ring on my forefinger that I switch from side to side. But my DD always drained both sides so it really didn't matter which side I started on when she was younger.

Re: Which side did I use last???

I haven't read so I'm sorry if these are repeats.

I use ouchless hair ties. So when it was time to nurse (ds is also a one-sider) I put my hair up with it. Then when I was done, I took my hair down and put it on the wrist of the side I need to start on next.

The other thing I was told works is to put your boobs on a schedule. Use the right for 3hr no matter how many feedings and then the other boob or the next 3hr. It keeps the confusion down and also helps make sure dc is getting all that good fatty hindmilk.
