Okay, silly question for you breastfeeding mamas - does your baby prefer one breast over the other?
With my last one, it was my right, but with Xavier, it's definitely my left. I don't know if it has to do with how I hold him on one side versus the other, but when he gets overtired, it's tough to get him to latch on the right side.
Mommy to Jasmine (17), Kirsten (13), Ana (12), Katie (3), Xavier (1), and...
She much prefers the right. At first it would take me forever to get her to latch the left and then she would only stay on for about a min(maybe). She is better about it now but if she is over tired or too cranky she still wont take it.
Mine prefers the right side because my left side is like drinking from a firehose (I imagine). My left produces a ton with an over active letdown so she has to really gulp on that side. I think the right side is more relaxing for both of us.
