Hi,
That's a common problem. I think it happens because a particular hold is more comfy for mum & bub so both tend to prefer to feed from that side.
You might need to try experimenting with different positions for holding him otherwise you will feel VERY lopsided and possibly end up with mastitis. If all else fails, try expressing milk from the full boob to relieve pressure, and feeding it to him. Someone else out there may have other suggestions. Good luck!
