So do I need to express the breast that's not fed from?...
My baby is 11 weeks and breastfed and given bottled expressed milk.
When I breastfeed he usually has 20-30 mins of one breast and is satisfied so I then express the other side. Do I actually need to do this?
I worry if I don't my supply will be affected! I do also alternate which side he starts on, occasionally he will have both or at least a few mins on the other side.
Any advice would be great 😊
