    Default which side?

    I am just starting out with pumping and it is confusing. I am trying not to do anything that will mess up my supply.
    So if I BF my son from one breast, and then pump the other breast after, what side do I start with for the next feeding?
    And if I do this only a few times a week, is that ok?

    Default Re: which side?

    I would start nursing on the side you pumped on at the next feeding.

    Babies are more efficient at removing milk than a pump and I would look at it like you do when you nurse on both sides at a feeding. At the next feeding you start on the second side.
