Re: arching and throwing head back
Some babies don't like to have the back of their heads touched. If you're holding her head when you bring her to latch on, try holding the back of her neck, with your thumb behind one ear and your forefinger behind the other ear.
Even as adults, we'll often throw our heads back if someone puts their hand on the back of our heads. It's the same reflex in infants.
