Hi, my beautiful boy is also a vigorous nurser. We've improved our latch but could still use some help as I still get creasing in my nipples sometimes. I think he is gumming the nipple. I'd like to get him to open his mouth wider rather than inhaling my nipple like vacuum!!
Also, he has started this bad habit of yanking his head back to detach...without opening his mouth! Ouch!!! I try to catch him and pull his lips back when I think he wants off but I can't always predict this sudden movement.
Does anyone have tips for getting the mouth wider and especially- encouraging a gentle detachment?
