    Have you tried this trick yet? Get all settled in as if to nurse on your left side, but then slide him over a bit to actually latch on to your right? His feet will dangle off to your right side, kind of like a football hold (you could set up a pillow next to you for support).

    heres some pictures of just general holds.
    I had to trick my dd into taking my right one she only liked it in the football hold.
    What ever works to get the baby to latch on try!
    I couldn't flip her around she didn't like that at all, I had to slide her over to the other side. Her feet always had to be pointing to my right..
