My dd always preferred my right side too. The only advice I can give is not to always offer that side, make sure that you keep feeding your baby from both sides to keep your supply going.

I used to latch ds3 on to the left breast facing the "wrong way" so that he was fooled into thinking he was on the right breast. usually worked!

How often is your baby being fed? If its only one feed a day why not just give that from the side it prefers? I prefer to feed ds4 from the left side and as he only really has a feed first thing and a quick suck at night I do the morning feed from my left and the night from the right.

i used the same method as chipmonkey ... if you lie them so they are latched onto the 'wrong' side with their body going under your arm and legs tucked around your side iykwim.
