I have a 12 day old, who is my 4th successfully breastfed baby. Our bfing relationship has been great so far, until the past two days. I think I am experiencing the frustration of a retracting nipple - every time I try to get her to latch on, she can't and it seems that the nipple doesn't retain its "nipple" shape. It essentially "collapses." The nipple itself does not appear to be inverted like the pics I've seen online, so I'm confused as to how to go about fixing the problem. My pedi (who is extremely pro-bfing) isn't open til Monday and I'm a bit nervous about it, seeing as we've only successfully fed on that side twice today. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks in advance.
