Our baby Joshua is 10 days old and has suddenly started to reject the right breast. The right breast seems to be more engorged than the left breast which was making us think that could be why he's fussing and trying to get away from the right. He will latch and go for a few second before crying. Everything is normal with the left breast. For the last day we have been pumping the left breast a little at his feeding to reduce pressure and pain. We are worried he's not getting enough from only one breast and how to get things back normal. Any help would be greatly appreciated! This is or first child and every small bumd in the road gets us worried. Please help.

Daddy and Mommy

Could be the let down is stronger on right side, you could let off some of the pressure to see if that helps, sometimes it's an infection but at 10 days seems unlikely. Also try different holds, football, upright, lying down etc. It's good to change holds anyway as it helps drain the breast more evenly.
