I've been exclusively bf for the last 4 mos with my lo. But i'm noticing feeding differences on each breast. On the rt she's feeding for about 30 seconds and on the left she's feeding for about 2 min (i'm not worried about how short she feeds, her weight gain is good). How do I increase her feedings on the other side. I know there is less milk in the rt side so i've started nursing her on that side at the beginning of every feeding, because if i offer her the left first she will not take the rt at all. When she will allow me, usually during her night nursing, i'll let her use the rt as a soother as long as i'm can stay awake (she will not use me as a soother when awake, she will bite me in frustration if i try). I think the left has a heavier letdown than the right and she simply doesn't want to work for it. And breast compressions while nursing on the rt seem to do little in encouraging her to stay and work for her hind milk. Any suggestions?
My other question is about spitting up. During her night nursing she will eat a lot and never spit up. However during the day she eats half the amount and spits up a ton! is this normal or should i be talking to the doctor about it?
