My 4-week old has a terrible latch. I think he's getting enough milk, but how can I be sure. I have the following questions/problems:
-pinching pain when he nurses (I keep trying to get his lower chin to open wider, but he closes it and pinches the nipple).
-he rarely 'falls off' the breast, so I either pull him off or he falls asleep
-I can't self-express very well.
-He spits up a lot after each feeding, which makes me think he gets too much milk at one time.
Has anyone else experienced this problems?
Also, I find that I'm having a hard time knowing whether or not he's actually hungry because he doesn't root as much, if at all.
Please help. Thanks.
