first please excuse my english, because i'm actually from estonia...
the reason i want to ask for advice is that my DS (5 weeks old) is continuing to prefer my right side. i had the same problem in the beginning with DD (8 years old now ), but i do not remember how did we get past it - because i nursed her for almost 2 years and i do not recall having this problem later on.
now my DS nurses from left side for 2-3 minutes only, then fusses, even cries and pulls away. i then have to give him the other side. he seems to get enough milk, because he has gained more than 1 kg since birth and is doing fine otherwise also.
so it's mainly my problem, not his as i am very small-breasted and i really do not want to be lopsided, too
i keep offering him the "bad" side first every nursing session, and it seemed to help a week ago. then i stopped doing that and nursed from one breast per session - and the problem started again as the milk supply in that left breast seemed to drop again. now back to offering that breast first.
his latch seems to be fine, we also have tried switching positions, but i am not very good with football hold, so it is not helping either.
well, is there anything else i could do? or is it just in my head and i should stop worrying?
