I'm looking for help.... I have a 4 day old baby who is all about nursing, but she wont latch very deeply. I can't get her to open her mouth very wide. I can usually get her to latch a little deeper as the feeding goes on.
Last night, I noticed that I am bleeding from both sides and my milk is red tinged.
My questions are....
- can I still nurse even though I'm bleeding?
- how to I get my nipples to heal
- how can I get her to latch deeper?
I used a sheild with my son and was hoping to avoid that, but will use i if it will help the situation.
