My 3 months old baby only feeds from my left breast from past one week though I use to breast feed her from both side. Don't know what may be the reason for it. My one side breast gets engorged but she refuses to drink. And when I am empty she cries and finally I have to end up giving her formula. Please any lactation consultant help me with techniques to feed her hassle free.

YOu have to see if the other breast nipple is retracted or is there any crack ? you have to patiently put on that breast and make the baby feed . It is not advisable to give formula
