My dd is 3 weeks old and was refusing to latch. I keep trying but have been pumping so she gets my milk. Well I finally got her to latch , my question is do I nurse both sides every feeding or do one side for one feeding and the other side for the next?

I did one side for one feeding and then the other for the next feeding. That's just what worked for me. Congrats on your new little one and good luck breastfeeding. My youngest is 15 months and we just weaned!

One side until she pops off, burp, offer other side. If she takes it great, if not, offer that side first next time. Let her lead the way.

Feed on one side until she comes off on her own, then offer the other side, if she wants more, she'll take it, if not start with that side at the next feeding.

Feed until she unlatches, burp, change diaper and then offer other side. this is what I always did. Now she nurses from both sides for one session and then the next time she may only tale one side. I just follow her lead
