Your baby's gums shouldn't be near your nipple. You don't have enough of your baby's breast in the baby's mouth. The gums should be back on your breast. Some babies do this if they have been given bottles or pacifiers. If you have been doing this, it's bad for breastfeeding and you may need to stop. Some babies can breast and bottle feed, most can't.
Wait until your baby's mouth is open wide and bring your baby to the breast, not shove the breast in the baby's mouth. Doctor have no training in breastfeeding. If you need help, call La Leche League or a lactation consultant. http://www.kellymom.com/ is a good web site.

Oops, I said your baby's breast and of course I should have said your breast.
