Please help! My baby is 6 months. I thought I was a confident bf for the first 3 months until my baby's had slow weight gain (3 ozs a week) from a period of 6 weeks. It totally knocked my confidence!
For the last 6 weeks she has been gaining 6 ozs a week, however, I still don't feel confident. I've noticed her chin never touches the breast whilst feeding. Should this still be happening as baby gets older? I keep trying to get her to open her mouth really wide but she slips off after a few seconds. She only nurses for about 3-5 mins at a time -on each breast. Is this long enough?
Does a latch change as baby gets older? Can anyone recommend a good feeding position for the 'older' baby?
Thank you so much. Sometimes I think I'm going crazy!
