Re: How to get baby to open wide enough??
Here are a few things that worked for me:
brush baby's lips with your nipple a few times, don't put it in until the mouth opens wide (sometimes mine would start to fuss and then I'd stick it in)
pinch your breast just above the nipple between your first and middle finger (like scissors) so it is sort of squished flattish, push it into baby's mouth, then let go and your breast will push baby's mouth open when it unsquishes
sometimes blowing gently in her face would get her to open her mouth, though not wide. this worked better for when she'd fall asleep.
