How do you breastfeed? 

I am a "one boob per feeding" type of gal and I had a friend tell me that she has never seen anybody breastfeed like that. Am I weird or are there others like me. lol

well I pumped but I emptied both.  You may switch such as one this feeding and then use the next at the next feeding.  I would think the other option would maybe be to switch midway considering both would be engorged and it may be painful much less a bit lopsided in the end.

I would feed on one side and when the other side got filled up I put ds on that side.

 it varried, mostly it was one breast per feeding, then next feeding, use the other one, but sometimes they were still hungry, or i was engorged, so i used both

When he was a newborn, I did both sides.  Now I just do one side, but sometimes at nap/bedtime he nurses on both until he falls asleep.
