Re: can you teach a 9 week old how to la
Welcome! It's totally not too late to get a better latch. Things will probably improve even if you do absolutely nothing- small babies have small mouths and even at the best of times they can have trouble achieving a perfect latch. But babies grow and their mouths grow, and eventually they can get a deeper "bite" of breast each time, without much assistance from mom.
Can you tell us a bit more about how nursing is going? When the baby latches on, is it painful? Does the pain persist throughout the feeding, or does it cease after a 10-30 seconds? Are you cracked or blistered at all? Has anyone checked the baby for oral thrush?
