    Default vids on latching inverted nipples

    Im trying to find videos on how to latch a baby onto inverted/flat nipples I cant seem to find any. Needing some major help as i have one flat one inverted nipple and breastfeeding has hit its all time low.

    Hi Cayla! I had similar issues, used a nipple shield for a long time. All I can say is it got better for me, and now nursing is great. I found this site helpful http://www.pumpstation.com/pumpstati...0&dept_id=3228 as well as the Dr. Jack Newman videos, but I felt like the thing that helped most was just time and perseverance.

    7 lbs 10 oz, 21 inches long
    8 lbs 3 oz at two weeks
    12 pounds, 24 1/2 inches at 2 months
    15 pounds at 4 months, 26 3/4 inches - he's gonna be a tall one!
    17 pounds at 6 months

    Took us almost 10 weeks, but we successfully weaned from the nipple shield. Boobie au naturale!
    and at home and like a machine at work!

    Thanks, I dont think latch would be an issue with us and I could successfully do this in the above link, if my nipple did protrude, but it doesnt and baby hasnt learned yet how to latch on without it protruding. My DD did eventually and im sure my son will too.. just will take time.
