My DD is just over 3 months old and I have been using the nipple shield up until this past Tuesday. She is in daycare for 10 hours M-F so I only nurse her 3-4 times a day during the week. So I nursed her with no shield on Tuesday and Wednesday and then Wednesday night a blister showed up on the tip of my right nipple (I've tried previously to wean myself from the shield but always got a blister so this is nothing new).
We've been seeing the lactation consultant weekly (due to weight gain issues) and I just saw her on Monday and she said that latch was fine.....obviously NOT!
Is it possible to have a bad latch on only one side?
I try to trick DD in thinking that she is on my left side by nursing her in the football hold on the right side....it doesn't work.
The title should say Shallow.
