Reason often unknown: Selecting one side only is not unusual but frustrating. If your baby keeps his head tilted or refuses to rotate completely from side to side, this may be reason. If you have a low grade infection in breast or plugged ducts, it may affect the taste of the milk or "let down" may not be as effective on L side. Try football hold, keeping b's head on the R, as if he were still on the R breast.
