Re: FTM problem with latching on one side
Sounds like things are going pretty well. You know what a good latch feels like, so hang in there with maintaining it...even if you have to unlatch and start over. I made the mistake of nursing through VERY painful poor latch on one side with my firstborn, and ended up with terrible cracking and bleeding. It took a long time to heal. So although it is frustrating, it is better than the alternative nipple trauma.
A lot of moms seem to find that things really fall into place around 6 weeks. Baby gets bigger and latch seems to improve overnight. Hang in there and congrats on the new baby!
