My baby is now 1 month old and just now at her EDD. She's finally eating great & gaining good weight. Now I'm turning my attention to our latch. It's okay, but not great and the nursing marathons have left me sore & with a blister! We have another appointment scheduled with an IBCLC but not until Thursday. It's going to be a long 4 days if this doesn't improve at least a little before then. I suspect a major weakness of our latch is that her bottom lip doesn't flange out. I can get my finger in there a flange it for het, but it slips right back in. We do best w cross-body & football hold, & I'm pretty good at bringing her deep into the breast, I think.
Does anyone have any tips or videos for how to help her little bottom lip stay flanged out?
I hope the solution isn't just to wait until her mouth gets bigger.
