Re: How often should I be nursing 10 month old?
That seems a bit low to me. Until a year, a baby's primary source of nutrition should be breastmilk, with solids "complementing" (the AAP's word choice, not mine) but not replacing breastmilk in the baby's diet. Most babies require at least 8 feedings per day in order to receive all their nutrition from breastmilk, so my thinking is that you want to aim for 8, or close to it, until the baby is 12 months. So if it were me, I'd try to add in a couple of feedings.
There are 2 downsides to nursing off one breast:
- not having a "spare" breast with which to feed baby, if the primary breast is unusable for some reason
Other than that, there's no real reason that you absolutely need to use both breasts at every feeding. The milk will probably not entirely vanish on the unused side until you are completely done nursing, but the supply on that side is likely to be minimal.
