Hey ladies, so I started breastfeeding my two week old and his latch must've been wrong in the beginning that he really did a lot of damage to my nipples. It was so painful that I had to stop and so I pumped all day for about 3-4 days to give them time to heal. When I was pumping, I would double pump for 20 mins and get about 2.5 oz total. I've gotten him back on the breast for two feedings but he only feeds off of one side before he falls asleep and its only for about 20 mins. I'm worried he's not getting enough since when he was bottle fed he would essentially be drinking from both sides for 20 mins instead of just one. I tried everything to wake him up and get him to latch on the other side but he just refuses. Does anyone have any advice for what I can do?
Also, could this possibly affect my supply ?
