I am in the same boat as some others. LO is 10 weeks, just learning to re nurse. No matter what I do, he doesn't open like those pictures. No tickling works. And he only stays open a second. I use the football hold. Only the very tip of the nipple gets sore, not the whole thing. Sometimes the top of the nipple will be white, like it's pressed against the roof of his mouth?
After he latches on, his mouth seems opened more wide across than wide from top to bottom. at the end of the feed he clamps down. Please help!!
