Breastfeeding

Q&A: Baby Doesn't Want Second Breast?

My baby fusses when I offer him the second breast. What should I do?

If baby eats well on the first breast and comes off on his own, he might not need the second breast. If baby seems full, it's fine to end the feeding here. When baby shows signs of hunger again, begin the next feeding with that second breast.
