Re: New here and have a couple of questions
Many moms nurse primarily or exclusively on one breast per feeding. It generally works well for moms with very abundant milk supplies, but it's not a good idea for a mom with an average or low supply. Sometimes a mom who starts out using just one breast per feeding ultimately transitions to nursing on both breasts, as her supply adjusts to a more reasonable level.
"Pulling on the nipple" can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes baby is trying to control a rapid milk flow, sometimes he is distracted (very common around 4-6 months), sometimes he is soothing his sore gums on mom. When do you find this behavior happens?
