My 3-week old apparently is compressing my nipple and not getting much breast into the lower jaw. Her latch looks uneven ... alot of areola into the top lip, 1/3 as much into the lower. My nipple is pointed into a line after every feeding no matter what I do (I've tried different positions, laid back breastfeeding, taking pumping breaks and finger feeding, on and on), and she always goes back to the breast the same way. Needless to say, the pain becomes so great I'm just in tears all day. Fortunately, she is doing ok and weight gain and bowel movements are all good.
Lactation consultants have looked but see no tongue-tie. She has a bit of an overbite which may be contributing. Also, after pumping I notice the nipples turn white - what is this? I really want to continue to breastfeed, but am getting close to the breaking point.
