How do you know when the breast is empty?
I recently bought a book on breastfeeding (I think the title is The 7 natural laws of breastfeeding, or something like that), that explains that with some feedings your baby might only want one breast, and at others, the baby may drain the first, and at that point, you should offer the second one to see if baby wants any more. My question is, how will you know once the baby has drained the first? With my first ds, I breastfed for about a month before moving onto pumping (we had issues that I wasn't quite sure how to deal with, but this time I am bound and determined to exclusively bf!), and I was never able to tell when he was done the breast. He fell asleep all the time, and when I would try to take him off, he would begin suckling again, but it I don't recall if it was ever because he was still hungry, or if he was using me as a pacifier.
Does anyone know how I can tell when to switch breasts?
