    Is there any problem with only feeding from the same breast at night and the other during the day? I have a Chicco Next2Me crib and when I feed my baby at night I use my left breast as I can lay next to him while he feeds and not need to move him. I use my right breast more during the day.

    U produce more milk on night and to keep feeding you need to feed at night. If you don't your milk may dry up in that boob.

    I can feed from my other breast by just rolling my body over a bit further, that way I still don't need to move my little one. I have large breasts which helps! I found it awkward at first but now I know what position I need to be in it is just as easy as feeding from the other side.

    Hello,

    I did this, switching boobs and it caused my son to develop a very slight flatness on the side of his head he was lying on all the time. Luckily, my HV picked it up super early, I stopped and it has completely disappeared. Please be vigilant if you're always feeding on one side.
