    Default Can someone clear this confusion?

    For a proper latch, is your nipple supposed to aim towards the middle of the baby's mouth or toward its roof? Every book I have says something different...I have always tried toward the roof and it has always been painful...what have you been told/had success with? Thanks!

    from that link
    Aim your nipple slightly towards the roof of his mouth, bringing baby to you, chin first.


    some place there are some pictures on-line
    I'll try and find them

    Here are some fantastic video clips of both good and bad latches, how to tell if baby is drinking, etc. They were a HUGE help to me. HTH!
