He has always favoured left the boob but for a couple of days now he won´t feed on the right one at all. I keep trying him on it but he screams and wails and just won´t stay latched on. I am worried my supply on the right will dry up...any suggestions...??

Doesn't matter a jot, bebespain. Your supply might well go on that side, and you may be a bit uncomfortable on the way, but you can make enough milk on one side only without a problem...don't fight him, just go with the flow!

It's unusual but not abnormal for this to happen.

Thanks TikTok - your´e a star! I mentioned it today at 6 month check-up and nurse said she had no clue well I am in Spain you know!
Don´t know where I´d be now without you lot - probably in a straight jacket somewhere.....
