My baby is one month old and we've been having some bf problems from the beginning. I finally realized that his latch isn't deep enough. I've tried so many things to fix that and I can't get any deeper. I tickle his upper lip to get him to open wide, but he never keeps his mouth open wide for very long so I can barely get much breast in.
I visited a lactation consultant yesterday and she was helpful. She said that he had a receded chin and that was one of the problems. However, to get him to open up wider she pulled down on his jaw. I would need a third hand to do this on my own, so basically I'm still in the same spot I was before. I'm getting so frustrated. Help!
