A newborn may reject one breast because it's harder to latch on to for some reason. The rejected breast may be more engorged or have a difference in the nipple, This is nothing to worry about. You can hold baby across your body with your left hand supporting her head and your left arm supporting her body. You want your thumb placed gently behind baby's right ear and your other fingers gently behind her left ear. Keep those fingers together. Support her head but don't push her head! This will help you baby feed from right breast too. The important point is for the baby to latch on to the right breast too. Hope this helps. Take care.
