    Thanks for asking this, after reading up on OALD, i'm not convinced that this is what is going on with us either...

    One other thing that I thought of is your LO possibly teething? that can cause them to change thier latch to try to get comfortable.

    i finally found a (somewhat) close lll leader... she suggested thrush, but i really wonder if it could be teething! while i was checking for patches, there are definite little marks on her gums... two faint white lines where her bottom incisors would be... but so early?? my boys cut their first around 5 mos, DD is only 3 mos...
