I need help, my first baby is 7 weeks old now, n still I am suffuring from sore nipples, my nipples come out from his mouth misshaped and flattned. He makes clicking sounds and I can see dimpling while he is suckling, also he latchs on with his upper lip flangged out. All of this poved to me that he is not latched on properly.
actully, right after birth he had breathing problame, so they didnt allow me to breast feed him, he was fed with the bottel for 3 days. When I brough him home he refused my breast, only on ths 7th day he gave up, during that period I fed him with a spoon. Anyays, so he wasnt a good feeder from the begnning and it seems that I also didnt teach him how to latch on properly.
Right now I am tryin to use the Sandwich techniqu to teach him to open wide and latch on properly, but its too dffuclt, its hard to get hold of his head, he is much stronger now, also he grasps my breast befoer I latch his lower lip before his upper lip.
Plllz help me, I just dont know how to teach him at this point, this is very frustrating.
