My 3 week old baby prefer only one breast, is it normal? is it OK to give formula milk to baby if mother's milk is not sufficient?


hi! it actually is quite normal. I have seen many such cases. Try your best to feed from both though.

Yes this is pretty normal. As Priya said, try feeding from both sides. If that doesn't work, try expressing milk from the other side by hand pressing or a breast pump, and feed that milk in a bottle or using a baby spoon.

Yes the more you feed from both sides more milk will form

I also have same issue bt my baby is nt interested to have expressed milk or he don't drink frm bottle or frm spoon den wht shld be done??

babies tend to favor one breast cause of varied reasons. try and change ur feeding position. or chk if the hold is correct. is the baby comfortable ? it may also happen if the baby has blocked nose or an ear infection. also if u feed less from one side, the supply becomes less. so the flow might be less cause of which the baby might not be intrested in latching.
