Me again 😊
Quick question, I'm getting different advice from different midwives and health visitors so just thought I would ask my mummy friends. 😘 I'm breastfeeding my nearly 5 week old girl and started feeding using just the one boob at each feed, alternating to the other ay the next feed, which seemed fine though she could still be latched on an hour later. At a recent baby group a midwife there said that after she has dropped off that boob and been burped, offer her the other side. Ive done this for one day so far and as much as she doesn't seem to feed for as long and sleeps a bit better I have a feeling that it isn't right to do this as she wouldn't get as much hind milk and more fore milk. And will it affect my supply? She's just had a growth spurt so my boobs are achy and leaky with all the extra milk at the mo.
Any advice is gratefully received.
