One side? Both sides?
So DS is now about 7.5 months old. At his 6 month check up his weight had fallen from the 50th percentile down to the 5th percentile but, surprisingly, the pediatrician wasn't concerned.
For a while now DS has only ever eaten on one side, not both. I guess I'm wondering if I should be trying to have him eat on both sides at every session? I'm not sure if maybe he's just not eating enough, but he always seems satisfied. I know that feeding on one side only is also a kind of block feeding and I'm wondering now if that had contributed to my difficulty in pumping enough milk for daycare (I pump on both sides when I pump).
I don't know that i've ever seen anything that says whether or not you should always try and have baby feed on both sides every time so I thought I'd ask. Feels kind of foolish to ask nearly eight months in, but here we are... :P
