I haven't done it, but I would think that it would be able to be done.
Really, the main reason (that I know of) for switching between both boobs equally is to prevent one from over producing and becoming lopsided.
I will say that both of my kids had a preference for one side and fed more so from that side. It was more 60/40 ish, not exclusively from one side, but I did perfectly fine with that (even had minimal lopsided-ness XD)
I think you'll be fine :) Good luck :)
