Answer: Hello dear It is normal if ur baby is refusing one breast an drinking from only one breast. U dont need to worry because the more your baby drinks from one side, the more that breast will produce milk. There can be various reasons ur baby is taking only one breast: 1. Ur breast is so stiff that it cause latching difficult 2. Difference in nipples, might be left one is easy to latch 3. Flow differences between the two nipples 4. Low milk supply in one breast 5. Taste of that breast is not good 6. Maybe your baby is refusing one breast because he/she is more comfortable on one side. 7. Might be ur baby has ear pain or infection in that side

Answer: U need more patients untill he latches properly,try to make him to latch as much as possible,,don't get depressed or lose hope , depression is also one of the cause for reducing breast milk, It happens with some babies too,, it's quite normal,,untill he latches properly, try to use breast pump and feed him,,the more you pump or the more baby sucks , creates more milk.
