Wow, I didn't know that it could last years. Thanks for sharing.

My DD always had a strong breast preference and when I was slowly weaning her she eventually stopped nursing from her non-preferred breast for probably the last month or so of weaning.
Thanks, Quinalla! I do think it might be more comfortable (he seems to have shown slight favoritism for that side since around 6 months, but it has never really been an issue) for teething. I don't seem to have any supply issues from pregnancy, but I do want to avoid going dry on the side he is ignoring since it would only be for a few months.
I'm hoping he will go back to nursing on both sides when his teeth come through.
Thank you both for sharing- it makes me feel much more sane to not be the only one to experience this!
