    Default DS hates my right breast?

    Hi guys,

    I'm having a hard time getting DS to feed from my right breast?

    I noticed about a month or so ago he preferred my left breast, but the last couple of days he won't feed for longer than a couple of minutes? He fusses and cries until I put him back on my left.

    I've been trying to start each feed on my right but he gets upset and cries until I switch.

    Any suggestions?

    My first thought is a sore neck. Second is, because he isnt feeding off that one much, supply isnt as great as other one so he has to work harder.

    A chiro can sometimes help with these types of issues...

    DD is the same but she doesnt like lefty! She mainly feeds on righty now....I can sometimes get her on lefty (as I dont want to be lopsided) but only when she is sleepy. This started about 3 months ago for me....before that she was fine on both.

    Not sure what has happened...not sure how to change it but she is perfectly happy with righty and seems to be getting enough (she doesnt come off righty and want more) so I figure it must be ok.

    How old is your bubs?

    We had the same issue with DS. His neck was out, since seeing a chiro we haven't had anymore issues.
    I hope you can sort it out soon!

    What other ways can I tell if he has a sore neck?

    Chiro as in chiropractor?

    And DS is almost 4 months old.

    Yeah I can sometimes get him on if he's full from the left and sleepy too.

    I'll express off my right to try to keep up supply too.

    Yes a paediatric chiro. Not really sure how else you can tell. We went because DS had a really strong preference for one side and only turned it one way. One session sorted him out and he slept heaps better.

    express a bit out before feedng bub from that boob, it may be too full from bub not feeding from it. also try different positions it just mighg be that he is uncomfortable. babies favour a boob because the position is comfy. try laying down see if that helps.

    my dd was the same amd this was the advice given to me from a midwife and lc. it helped and now we are feeding fine from both boobs. good luck
