    Unhappy Latching problems

    When I first started breastfeeding I never had a problem with my latch but when my milk supply came in I can't seem to get her to latch onto my left breast so I have been feeding with the right and pumping the left. It looks like the nipple changed shape and I can't seem to figure out a good position.

    Is it because you are engorged? One thing you could try is just pumping for a few minutes to soften your breast, and then try latching again. Good luck!

    Yeah I'd get or rent a pump. When my milk came in all bfing stopped for me. The pump helped a lot, even with my problems.
