For those of you who are exclusively BF, I am trying to figure out what to do. My girls are nearly 10 months old but eat very different amounts of solids. They get 3 meals a day. The AM meal is very small, lunch is a bit better, and dinner is better still. My Baby A feeds herself pretty well, esp at dinner. My Baby B still eats barely any solids and does not self-feed. Both STTN. Do I need to "assign" a boob for each baby? I feel like Baby A needs less milk because she takes in more solids. I currently switch boobs at every nursing.

LOL, I mean, I alternate which baby is on which boob at every nursing. Guess you can't really switch out your boobs. Or should I not change anything since everything seems OK? I'll find out weights this week at their check-up.

I would keep them switching sides. Otherwise, you're likely to end up even more lopsided than is normal, IYKWIM!
