LO is almost 10 weeks and she still won't open her mouth wider which makes my nipples sore. Sometimes if she gets a good or deeper latch her mouth would slide down after a few seconds or she would pull back her head to get a shallow latch because I guess she's more comfortable with it. I'm afraid that this has become a habit of hers and latching will be unfixable. Don't know what to do now. Because of sore nipple I would sometimes bottle feed her if pain is unbearable. She also likes to comfort nurse and since I can't give my breast all the time I give her pacifier. Could this be the reason why she can't practice opening her mouth wider. Is it still going to get better?
I have gone this far and I'm not ready to give up just yet but I'm going back to work in less than 3 weeks and I want to start enjoying BF at least before working.
