how can you correct latching issues after almost 6 months of breastfeeding? I think a main problem i'm having is latching issues causing blocked ducts, blisters, sore nipples, unhappy baby etc. The problem is, he won't open wide at night--he is waking every 1 1/2- 2 hours now and only slightly opens his lips for the nipple. I'm so tired that I am resorting back to side lying because i don't have the strength to get up and feed him now. I think its harder to get a good latch with this position?
Is it too late to correct this problem? Should I be referred to a lactiation consultant (not sure if they will see someone this far along?).
