My right nipple is pretty short and even though I know babies breastfeed not nipple feed Abby has a hard time getting enough in her mouth and I can feel her tongue flicking the tip of my nipple when she latches on. She tends to pull off a lot and relatch at the beginning of the feed. Once she gets going it's ok but it bothers me and my nipple is pretty sore. Her jaw is tight and it's really hard to get her to open big enough.
I have been trying some gum massage on her lower jaw and some suck training but it doesn't seem to be helping so far.
Do you all have any ideas or experience with this? I am battling thrush as well and my nipple hurts pretty badly. I did get some of Dr. Newman's APNO for my nips and it's helping but OUCH!
