    Default left side less full?!?!

    Okay ladies..I need some help. My LO is starting to change her nursing pattern. She nurses well during the night (3-4 times) and not so well during the day(4 times). She is perfectly content and has great diapers and weight gain.
    My problem is that I am worried about my left breast not getting as full. I was wondering, since my right breast is doing okay, and I can pump it if needed, should I try bfing on the left first for the next few feedings instead of switching back and forth each feeding? Usally she only eats from one side per feeding.
    I am just worried I may loose my milk in my left breast. Any suggestions?!?!

    Try always starting on your left side for a day or two.

    What should I do about the right breast in the mean time? This morning I nursed to the left and pumped the right. I am eating oatmeal, taking my vitamins, doing the massages, and warm showers..anything else I should be doing??
