I don't mean to gloat, but I am doing SO WELL with the breastfeeding thing! My DD and I have an EXCELLENT latch, and she's gaining weight and getting chubby cherub cheeks!
That all being said, I'm now wondering if I'm even doing this right. Each feed I offer her one breast. I have a bracelet that keeps track of which side she nursed at last time as well as what time she last fed. She's feeding every 2-4 hours and spends about 20-30 minutes at the breast before she nods off. On occasion she'll unlatch but still be hungry, and I'll offer her the other side which she'll take for a minute or two before she falls asleep.
My question is am I doing this right? She's 16 days old today, and I want to ensure my milk supply is equal between the two breasts (which it seems to be so far). Should I continue the way I am? Or should I offer BOTH breasts to her each feed for a limited amount of time? And that being said, how do I keep track of which side to start with each time?
Or am I overthinking this all??
Thanks in advance!
