My 5 week old son's latch seems to have changed in the past week. He used to be a pretty efficient nurser, however he only nursed for 10 minutes at a time. He would have a good latch and strong suck. Lately he pops off and seems to kind of push himself off with his tongue and/or slip off like he isn't sucking correctly.
I always check to see that his lower lip is flanged out. I noticed yesterday that he is putting his tongue between my breast and his lower lip. It doesn't happen always, but could that be why hes "slipping" off and pushing himself off? Is this just a phase? Will he correct it? He gets so mad having to relatch over and over, especially at night. Also, I've noticed an increase in his gas, and discomfort from it. I feel this could be that he is sucking in more air due to the latch problems.
What can I do to fix this?
