Bad latch after strike-any ideas?
DD2 is 18 mths and it looks like she has just come out of her 4th strike. I really thought this was it since with the other strikes, she would nurse for maybe 2 min first thing in the morning. This time she wouldn't do anything at all for over 10 days.
Problem is, her latch is really bad and anything I do to try and get her mouth open wider just makes her not do it. So I have been letting her do it her way and the milk doesn't always letdown, its not hurting but I would like her to always get as much milk (she is FTT). I have been pumping and getting about 18-19 oz per day since she stopped so the supply should be ok (I hope). She has never been a super enthusiastic nurser but I really want to keep doing it, 18 mths just isn't enough for me personally.
