Hey moms! I am very knew to the Mom world, my little girl is one week old today. One thing I did not mentally prepare for was how hard breastfeeding can be!
She is able to latch to the left, sometimes it takes seconds and sometimes it take up to 40+ minutes but she refuses to latch to the right. I have not gotten her to feed on the right. So, our routine is to feed from the left every two hours, I try the right and then pump and save the right in the freezer. Anyone else have success with feeding just from one breast? I’m so afraid she isn’t getting enough but she has been peeing and pooping just fine. Any suggestions? I have come so close to just bottle feeding what I pump but I really want to make this work.
Thanks!

Have you tried different holds on the right?
You would benefit from seeing a lactation consultant to help you. That way they can see you feeding her and give advice.
