Breast feeding

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.

Maybe try starting on the right. There is nothing wrong with bottle feeding breast milk. I guess just keep trying.
What about holding her differently so her left cheek is against your right breast? I guess more like a football
