    Default latching help

    My little guy is 2 weeks old now and we have just started breastfeeding without a nipple shield. I can get him to latch good on my right breast but not my left. I can't seem to get him to latch on with more of the bottom of the breast making it very painful to breastfeed from that breast. Any suggestions?

    You may want to contact one of your local LLL leaders so that she can help you, hands-on. The good thing is that you know what a good latch feels like. Just keep working with baby to get him to latch on properly. Some babies have a breast preference.

    Have you tried different positions with him to see if that makes a difference?
