We investigate the doping dependence of the magnetic excitations in two-superconducting-dome-system LaFeAsO$$_{1-x}$$D$$_{x}$$. Using inelastic neutron scattering, spin fluctuations at different wavenumbers were observed under both superconducting domes around $$x = 0.1$$ and 0.4, but vanished at $$x = 0.2$$ corresponding to the $$T_c$$ valley. Theoretical calculations indicate that the characteristic doping dependence of spin fluctuations is rationally explained as a consequence of the switching of the two intra-orbital nestings within Fe-3$$d_{YZ, ZX}$$ and 3$$d_{X^2-Y^2}$$ by electron doping. The present results imply that the multi-orbital nature plays an important role in the doping and/or material dependence of the $$T_{c}$$ of the iron pnictide superconductors.
