I will try watching the video and doing the laid back nursing. We tried a couple of times yesterday, and I failed at it miserably. I think that's where his frustration with the breast started. My nipples point down, so it was difficult to get him and my breast positioned so that he could latch. My LC did check for tongue tie, and said it looked fine. I'm not sure if she checked for lip tie. I've never heard of that before, but I am assume if she checked for tongue tie, then she probably checked for other issues as well?
Thank you for your reply. This is becoming so overwhelming so quickly. I'm just so sad that I can't seem to get it to work. I am terrible at helping him latch, no matter how many videos I watch or books I read. It is definitely an art, and not one I am proficient at in the slightest.
