Re: 8 month old will not correct latch
My first thought is that you want to get in to see the LC as soon as possible. Cracked and bleeding nipples are nothing to trifle with. What are the cracks like? Are there multiple cracks per nipple, are they slit-like, do they radiate? Or is there just one big crack, perhaps fairly deep, that gales wide after your baby finishes nursing? (The former would indicate thrush, the latter a latch issue.)
Is baby being treated for thrush, too? Sometimes an uncomfortable mouth can cause latching issues.
