Does anybody have any suggestions for improving the latch of my five month old?
DD is ebf and although her latch has never been 100% it has recently deteriorated with the onset of teething and some bad habits. Fortunately I have good supply and we've never had any issues with weight gain or outputs but I have been having pain while nursing for the last month or so.
DD latches reasonably well on the left breast but when latching on the right side she just doesn't seem to want to open her mouth far enough to take in more than just the nipple. She also slips off, loses suction quite frequently and leaks milk but the latch is slightly better if we side lie or dangle nurse (not always practical solutions!)
At this point in time the pain is manageable and some nursing sessions are better than others but I would really like to see if we can achieve a better latch.
Thanks in advance!
