Q:

hi, my baby takes feed only right side, left side I tried so many times..but every time she cried and not taken.I don't know whts problem....and how I can increase.. breast milk..?



Dr. Payal M

lot of babies have a side preference ,possibly as the let-down is slower/faster on that side depending on what baby likes. keep offering the left at first when baby is hungry; or offer the right and then gradually slide the baby to left without changing position.
some babies with ear infection or mouth sore may also prefer one side which is less painful.

thanks a lot mam... but if she have infection ..than I have to consult doctor ....

Dr. Payal M

yes what i mean is just make sure she is otherwise doing fine and anything more serious is ruled out. I had the same issue but I kept offering the other side and pressed the Breast a little incase flow was less. he settled in three four days.

Dr.kinjal kapadiya

OK mam. .. I will try. thanks

If the milk is less on one side then express more on that side frequently so that the supply builds up and the baby gets interested.
