Re: Poor latch in older baby (16 months)
Hi! I have a 16 month old who I also suspect has always had a shallow latch and she also "resets" it if I try to adjust it for her
If it's just the teething, I would imagine it will pass soon. When DD cut her top teeth, I found she would rest them on my nipple and just drag my nipple down. It was kind irritating. The advice I read on Kellymom.com was to adjust her whole body position. It worked 50% of the time for us. In the end, I just pushed through and it just got better, not one of my favourite stages of nursing (along with distractible baby phase) but very temporary.
