How long should I feed on each side?

Should I feed baby on one side or both sides? Does it matter?

Studies states that you are to feed on one side until that side is empty. It is hard to tell that in the beginning but I ask moms to stay on one side in the beginning for 15-20 minutes before switching sides and if baby is satisfied with one side then you are done with that feeding. Start on the other side for the next feeding.
