One boob or two
« on: June 05, 2017, 11:49:04 am »
I've always wondered if i should offer one or both boobies when breastfeeding? Currently, i only do one side but sometimes I've offered the other side (like if I nursed on the wrong side and am
Now overly full on the other) and my LO has happily taken it too.

I'd offer the second side, if LO will take it :).

I'd offer the second but only once LO has come off the first side by themselves.

The only time this isn't really advisable is if you have a large oversupply and LO is suffering from the effects of too much foremilk.
