    when you feed baby from one breast for a set period of time.
    So like some moms use the 3 hour time period.
    If it been less then 3 hours you use the same breast.
    Then when baby wants to nurse after the 3 hours is up you use the 2nd breast. Make any sence?
    Your still switching but its on the lines of finish the 1st breast 1st.
    Block feeding can help with over supply problems.

    Ok, so when he eats and obviously doesn't finish the first side and is hungry again, I feed him from the same side. I've been doing that just because we've had an issue with green poo. I wanted him to get the fat hindmilk. I just never knew that it had a specific name. Thanks for the info.
