I've posted several times here trying to figure out my sore nipple problem so I apologize for seeming all over the board with my questions!!
Quick background - LO tongue tied, clipped at 4 weeks following bleeding cracking nipples. Nursed well for about 1 week, then for previous 3 weeks slurping at nipple.
After carefully watching LO nurse lately I am fairly certain that my nipples are sore due to a shallow latch and I can't seem to consistently correct it! Every once and awhile I get that deep latch and am so excited but can't get it again. I've tried the nipple sandwich link. Any other suggestions? Does a nipple shield help teach baby to latch?
I'm not sure if I have OALD but with my other children there was definitely alot of gulping, slurping and choking and they were typically able to finish nursing in about 5 minutes on one side. This one nurses much longer with less of the choking.
