For some odd reason Luke is not wanting to eat off of my right side, and he had not been getting bottles or anything, I do not know what to do about this. It makes me sad and i need help!! any suggestions??
AK was doing this when she was a little over 2 months old...she would scream and scream whenever my right boob was close to her mouth. I just kept offering the right side to her first every time she ate. It worked especially when she woke up at night to eat and was still pretty sleepy.
I'm sorry I don't have any other advice than to keep trying...AK got over it pretty quickly and now eats from either side just fine (knock on wood)
There are some babies that only want to lay a certain way for whatever reason. Have you tried a different position (football, side lying, etc.)? A friend of mine had this happen and her daughter did football hold on one side and cradle on the other. Don't give up......
There are times that for what ever reason, Liam prefers one side over the other. I'd suggest just continueing to offer the other side...maybe try feeding in a different position then you normally do...maybe laying down or in a football hold?
