I get a horizontal crease on one, and a lipstick shape on the other. Sometimes my lo clicks a lot while drinking and I feel something that feels like a readjustment and sharp pinch.
I have tried everything to get a good latch - the head tilted back, the nipple towards the top...different positions..doing the u or c hold on the breast to shape it..
Is it possible to just have a bad latch despite all this? I mean obviously I am haha so that's not quite the right question. I guess what I am asking is .. any thoughts as to what my lo might be doing in his mouth that I can't figure out?
Is it possible that my nipples are just too short, and his mouth shaped a certain way, that they're just not going to reach the soft spot? Just an incompatibility issue maybe???
Any other tips to get a better latch?
It doesn't seem like he's tongue tied...hard to tell, I am going to ask the doctor Tues to have a look but I feel like most doctors aren't too educated on that.
I feel a bit alone in figuring this out... we're 6 weeks into bfing and I really want to get a better latch and not encourage a bad one for too long.
