Do you or your baby have a favorite side?

We both prefer the left. I use the right side but my left is easier and more comfortable for some reason.

Left.  In fact, my right side dried up ages ago, which is a blessing right now.  I had to wean suddenly (my daughter is two, so she's fine) and my left boob is YOUCH!!!!!) but my right boob is "and?".

Anyone know when my milk supply should start drying up?  I'm pg, so I can't take anything.  Do I just have to wait 3 more months?  (Until the colostrum comes in.)  I hate placenta previa and pelvic rest!  Milk, milk everywhere, and none to drink!

right boobie lover here...I was relieved to see a previous poster say her one boob was dried up. My dd will barely have 3-5 minutes with the one reject boob lol I start her off on it first, and after 2 min she's DONE, I burp her, and re offer it..but for only 2-3 min she'll tolerate it. then it's off to the good stuff...where she'll nurse for 20 min. yes. i'm lopsided. very lopsided. lol i hate it! any ideas? I was pumping that side, but it came to be too much effort.

Left WOULD be our favorite because I'm right handed so I have that one free when he's on my left side to do things BUT...It's so super sore. For some reason he gets lazy and gets a bad latch on it! Sucks

My right side is much bigger than my left. Nicolai (4 months) loves the right side and doesnt really like the left. I want him to nurse from the left more often because I want it to produce more (and maybe get bigger, like the right side).
