I would call your lactation consultant. They will come out to you and watch baby eat and help you with suggestions on how to get baby to latch better. It could be that baby just is not latching well on that side, or baby just prefers the other side (sometimes starting on the side baby does not like first helps), or it could be that you need to pump a little first when nursing on that side.... sometimes you can be too full for baby to nurse well. Having the lactation consultant come will help you tons. :)
