Re: Latching wrong?
This is a pretty normal occurance, I think the technical term for it is scraping (I was gonna post a link, but I see Karen's already posted it). I had this problem when my lo's mouth started filling up with teeth. I found that shifting the baby's position helped tremendously. Try moving baby to the left or right tilting the head towards or away from you, or lifting baby up or down. See what helps relieve the irritation, and it might be something different each time you nurse. I'd just have to keep adjusting the way I was holding my lo until it was comfortable. Don't worry, he will get used to nursing with teeth and will get better about latching around his teeth once he is used to it. In the meantime you don't have to suffer, though, just keep changing positions.
As for getting distracted, that's normal too. They start to get more interested in other things and the boobie doesn't hold their interest the way it used to. One thing you might do is if he is trying to look at someone or something else in the room, unlatch him and let him look and then latch him back on when he's done. He will quickly learn that if he wants the boobie he needs to stay focused and that if he wants to look around, he needs to unlatch first.
