 Does your baby prefer one side or the other? My dd will start nursing on one side 2 seconds later she wants the other side. Any other babies do this?

My kids always preferred one side.  After a few months they were always just taking the one side that they preferred and not the other unless they were very sleepy.  This baby likes my left side.  My boobs are really disproportionate now!

Mackenzie always preferred the left side for some reason, she would still nurse out of the right but she preferred the left.

 I think he is to young to care. I prefer the left side though, its easier for me to hold him on that side plus my right hand is free so I can get things done.

Maddox has always prefered the left breast.  Now he won't even nurse on the right at all anymore! lol.  My supply has gotten fairly low now that Maddox is 2 1/2, so I don't look too lopsided, but one is definitely bigger than the other now! Haha.  Oh well.  I'm sure they'll even out when he weans.

Paige nurses better on my left, but she does just fine on the right, just takes a little longer to get going.

My daughter preferred my right side for a while, and then she switched to preferring the left for a while.
