Re: Bad latch at 6 months
Welcome to the forum!
In general, a latch that feels good is good, even if it looks odd. As long as mom isn't in pain and the baby is gaining weight at a normal rate, there's nothing to worry about!
Fast feedings are also normal with older babies, who learn to get their nutritional needs met very quickly so that they can get back to exploring the interesting world around them.
It's normal for a baby's rate of weight gain to vary. Sometimes a baby will shoot up in height while pausing in weight, or pause in height and put more calories into fat. And around the 4-6 month mark, many babies start to drop weight-for-age percentiles as they devote increasing amounts of calories to motion. All the reaching/rolling/squirming/crawling/etc. that babies do consumes a lot of calories.
