    Default Favourite breast...

    My 10 and a half month old baby girl has been favouring my right breast for months now, which means the milk production on he left is considerably less than on the right. She usually throws herself backwards and cries if I even just change her position to position her on the left! At work I managed to express at least twice a day, and could sometimes coax her to feed on the left if she was in a good mood (rarely though). She nurses 8-10 times per day. I have now quit my job to become a full time mom, which I'm extatic about, but this means problems with time to express on the left! Is there any way to encourage baby to accept the left breast more readily? I'm becoming seriously lopsided!

    I have the same issue going on. I have no idea. It's my right side he favors as well.

    Have you tried while your baby is sleepy?

    Yes I have, and generally that's the worst time as she gets very moody when tired! Lol

    Up until recently I still managed to feed her on the left occasionally, but now she just flatly refuses. It's very strange!
