I have twin boys 11 weeks 1 day taken 6 weeks early. They were NICU, one for 10 days and one for 3 weeks and were given bottles of EBM or formula. Pleanty of wet diapers, poop once a day or every other day.
I have problems getting them to open wide to latch and most times jus let them do what they can. My nips are pretty large, almost the size of marbles. I have read that there should be no crimping, white spots, or any change in the nipple once the baby de-latches in order for the latch to have been proper. When my boys latch, wide mouth or not, it does not hurt. Sometimes my nips come out looking like a lipstick tip or are white on the tip. Does this mean the latch was bad? Not getting enough milk? If so, how the heck do I get them to open wide? They cannot take more than about an inch of my breast (first knuckle on my pinly) or they start gaggng.
Any help would be appreciated.
