Re: Single side feeding- is it okay to continue?
What is with these doofusy docs that want it both ways? Well, FWIW, my son was about that size at 2 months when I had been only feeding from one breast at a time just because that's what DS decided he wanted. At 4 months was 20 and a bit lbs, and now at 9 months is 25, lol (and yes I'm disregarding my ped's criticism that he's too big and my milk is "too rich" so we'd better scale it back). DS went through what I can only assume was a growth spurt or a phase a couple weeks ago where he wanted to switch sides and now we're back to one at a time. When he was doing a lot of evening cluster feeding up until around the 6 month mark, we did switch, occasionally. Now he sleeps and guzzles most of the night so I don't even pay any attention I just switch when I get uncomfortable.
So this fat baby over here says let your baby tell you whether or not he wants to switch sides.
