    Unhappy bfing and pumping

    can i exclusively feed on one side and then pump exclusively the other side? My newborn latches on better to my right side than my left side.

    You could. If your baby will latch on to the non-preferred side, it probably would be better for both of you to nurse on it at least some, rather than exclusively pump.

    This non-LLL resource has some good tips for helping baby take the non-preferred side. You might find it helpful:

    If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
