How do I get my 3 week old baby to latch on a breast she absolutely refuses! She latches just fine to one but fights with the other

Try holding her in the same position for the great she will latch on and just slide it over to the other breast.

That is what I was going to suggest. Even get her nursing on te preferred breast, then when she starts to slow down a bit unlatch her and "sneak" her over to the other side without changing her position.
