I am nursing my almost 9 month old and am having a lot of pain on just the left side. He latches on great for the right but it feels like his teeth are digging in on the left. I loaned out my book that talks about helping a baby to latch and can't find any diagrams here.
Can anyone remind me of where the chin and nose should be? And is there a way I can position him that will help? His belly is turned towards me and he doesn't pull away while latched on....it's just as he's sucking that his top teeth seem to be digging in. I'm nervous about him biting if I try to latch him on properly over and over so I'd like to get it right the first time...or at least bareable!
Also, does this just happen when they get new teeth and will go away eventually?
Thanks for any help and suggestions!
