Re: will take only one side
At the beginning I had one nipple that was flatter/more inverted than the other and I think that side also let down differently, so my baby didn't want to latch on, so I ended up being a little lopsided for a while. At the time I was hand-expressing to keep the supply on that side from dwindling, but after a while we got to where he would take it, which helped pull out the nipple and also bring the supply up. I tended to offer the more difficult side when he was asleep or very calm, and played with different positions because it seemed like another thing was that he preferred lying on one side.
Honestly side-lying and laid-back positioning were huge lifesavers for me, so if you get a chance to practice those it may help a bit. And try to offer the less preferred breast in a calm and low-pressure way until she gets the hang of it.
