DD is just two (like, four days ago!), and nursed all through my pregnancy. DS is one week old. DD's frequency has increased, I think due to both needing the time with me and because there's actually milk again. DS is a super lazy nurser, and I'm massively engorged, and I just can't seem to get any consensus on which child should nurse on which side and in which order. Neither child needs to nurse on both sides in a single feeding to be satisfied. I'm not really concerned about dd, but I want to make sure ds is getting the appropriate balance of fore/hind milk.
So, who goes where, and when?
For greater things are yet to come...
I wouldn't worry too much about foremilk and hindmilk. There were plenty of times where I needed my right hand for something, so I just let both twins have the same side, and saved the other side for later, or where one kiddo got a side, and then the other was super-hungry and took both, like twenty minutes later. And all sorts of other chaotic situations. Anyway, they all grew and thrived just fine.
I'm not there yet, but I wouldn't worry too much about it unless your DS is having green poo (too much foremilk) or seems to not be getting enough.
