DD never had the best latch. And I really tried to correct it -- with the help of two LCs -- but haven't gotten a better latch. Her two bottom teeth came in about a month ago, and I really think they're further affecting her latch. I swear I feel a pinch where her teeth are, but I know that theoretically she can't be biting if she's sucking. (And she's sucking, and drinking lots of milk.) So I've been dealing with this uncomfortable pinch that grew to be painful. Last night, after nursing, one nipple developed a nasty friction blister that's almost as big as my nipple. So today I've been pumping only and giving her a bottle.
When I break her latch and try again, I can get her mouth wide open, but she'll pull her head back and place her mouth where she wants it. I'm afraid to break the latch too many times because she has teeth now that can bite me if she becomes annoyed!
My question is ... I've seen 2 LCs that haven't been a help. And DD is almost 6 months. Do you think I can still change her latch, or is it what it is?
