My 3 week old will sometimes only feed on one breast for about 10 minutes before he falls asleep. He also gets very mad at times. He has a favorite breast so when he is on the "non favorite" he will get mad and is kinda impatient with it. I feel like it has less milk than his favorite one. Well today I let him feed for 30 minutes on one breast because I did not want to change him and interupt him bc then he would have stopped eating and would not have taken the other breast. Is this okay to alternate breasts every feeding? I am first time mom...and confused. I do not know much about the hind/fore milk and want to make sure he is getting it! Also...if he feeds on one breast for 30 minutes, now should I pump the other breast? It feels full and he is sleeping...probably will not eat for another 2 hours. It is not painful but I am unsure what to do here. Any help/advice I would love.Obviously I do not know the oz that he is consuming so I just judge by looking at the clock?
