    Yep I usually know its time to swap when she detaches a few times. Sometimes she'll latch on, suck suck suck, then come off crying, that's when I know it's time to swap.

    So glad you asked this question. I'm 30 weeks along and I've been wondering the same thing. Glad you asked!

    I wait for DD to stop or starts fidgeting, burp her and then offer the other side. Next feed I start on the side I offered last.
