Feeding on one side....broken big drink?
So my daughter named my breasts big drink lol! When she could talk she would ask for big drink
My right breast has a little bump on the bottom of the nipple which made it really uncomfortable for my little one to drink from. My LC said it would be okay if I fed him from the other side and just pumped the painful one to maintain some supply. Well.....I didn't keep up with the pumping and didn't have my son drink from that side very often. Now that breast is considerably smaller. What can I do? It looks really funny! Also, do you think he is getting enough nutrition from using only one side? Today I've been a little worried because he is sleeping ALOT! He is alert when he is awake but that's not often. However, I could be worried becasue my daughter never slept and that's what I am used to. He is 8 week old.
Also, my daughter refused to nurse from the side with the bump once she could talk. She told me it was broken.
Thanks so much for reading and for your advice/ideas!
