for the past couple of weeks or so, my 12-week old dd has been incorrectly latching while i'm nursing her in the side-lying position. she latches on just fine if i nurse her in the cradle or cross cradle position...but once we are in the side lying position, she only sucks around my nipple! OUCH! i've unlatched her and attempted to get her to latch on correctly, but it hasn't happened! i've tried repositioning her so that he chin is touching my breast (and her nose is not in my breast)...i've even tried gently pushing down on her chin right before she latches on. this helps for a while...then she'll let go and latch back on only at the nipple.
any suggestions or advice?! i need this side-lying position to work...this is how i'd like to nurse her to sleep at night.
