Does Your Baby Have A Favorite Breast Mine Does

Nadya feeds really well from my right br___t, and has always prefered it for some strange reason. When I try to stick her on the other br___t, she wriggles and fights, won't latch on properly, and I have to try all sorts of weird positions, to get her to feed from it. It hurts like h__l on that side as well, because she messes around so much, but on the right side, feeding is always calm and comfortable. I've started to just let her feed from the right and express from the left, because it's too uncomfortable. Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me? Did you manage to resolve it?

Blake is the same way. He started about a month ago I haven't found a way to resolve it so now I am very lopsided. I think it is quite normal for a baby to develop a preferred side. You might want to check with the ped to rule out an ear infection in her right ear though, I had Blake checked when it first started. If it is not an ear infection and you find a way to resolve it, please share!

Mine prefers the right side too. I've given trying to get him to latch on to the left side. too much of a struggle!! Then i'll just pump from the left after each feed to keep from being too lopsided. And recently, he has also acquired an irritating habit- that is, pinching and his favourite pinching time is feeding time.

I haven't really noticed my son prefering the right, but I do! Theleft one just seems awkward and sore. Maybe it's something to do with being right handed?

That's a good theory! I'm right handed. What about everyone else?
