Breastfeeding - express the side not fed from?

Hi everyone,

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 😊
