I'm breastfeeding and lately Sean has been draining one side and still been hungry, so I offer the second, but he only takes a little bit from the second side. He used to drain both sides. He's been constipated but that's clearing out now and his poops are green. I read that is a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance.

Do I start just offering one side since it seems like that satisfies most of his hunger or should I keep offering the second breast and allow him to take it even though he doesn't end up taking much?

If he is still hungry, offer the other side. Otherwise, stick to one side. Your supple should adjust soon if his nursing habits just recently changed.
