Just wanted to add my reassurances that the pp's offered. My DS1 did the same thing and I spent *forever* trying to get him to nurse on both sides at the same feeding! He just really didn't want to! One side was enough for him and when DS2 came along, he did the exact same thing - only nursed on one side for maybe 10 minutes max. One thing that worked with DS1 was walking around, like you tried. It made it more interesting to him to look around at the same time. With DS2, I just went with the flow and didn't worry about when or how much. He mostly nursed at night, but just weaned himself from night nursing (he's 15 mos.) Hang in there, you're doing great!
