Re: Anyone else have a kiddo who ONLY wants one side?!?

at 8 weeks wiht my DD my left side had a cracked nipple BAD. The let down and spray was so different after it healed that my DD never nursed again on that side. So I nursed her for the next 20 months off 1 side! I would pump the left 2 times a day and get alittle milk to make a bottle every few days(Im a horrible pumper) I was lopsided but after she weaned you could never tell

Re: Anyone else have a kiddo who ONLY wants one side?!?

I have a lefty here too. I can latch him on the right when he's not starving or anxious to nurse or if he's tired/sleepy and doesn't care. So I'm able to do that quite a few times per day. Mine is going on 8 months though lol. I think my let down is slower on the right because I don't feel it as quickly as I do on the left. Slightly lopsided but nothing a good bra can't fix

I've got a leftie here too, she will latch on to the right but the let down is WAY slower and there is way less milk. I am a little lopsided but no-one has ever said anything

Yup. I've completed dried up on my right side, and we're one-sided BF'ing successfully for about 2 months now. Good luck!

I have a lefty too. I have twice as much on that side with faster let down. It's my super-boob and he's in love with it.

Re: Anyone else have a kiddo who ONLY wants one side?!?

My right side always has way more milk, and a fast letdown. At first, Adrien hated it and favored the left. But not long after he hated the left and favored the right. Since the left always makes less milk, I offer it to him first..trying to get it to catch up w/ the right...

Re: Anyone else have a kiddo who ONLY wants one side?!?

What's with all of these lefty's? I've got one too!!! The pedi just told us the other day he has mild torticollis, so maybe that explains things a bit. Laying down on the right seems to ease the situation a bit and ds will nurse (although a bit reluctantly) a couple of times a day.

Re: Anyone else have a kiddo who ONLY wants one side?!?

That's interesting about they will pick one side when starting to wean. I think that is what my DS is doing. I'm not quite ready to do so, but he is. He likes the 5:00 feading and 7-7:30 feeding and after that only wants my right side for a few minutes then he starts to fight me as I try to keep him nursing and he wants to get up. I don't think he's getting enough milk fast enough.

I don't know if anyone else mentioned it but, could your child have a ear infection?? Maybe it is uncomfortable or painful on one side when sucking? Hope that helps!!!
