My girls will be six weeks old on Wednesday. They are usually very good at nursing but lately they seem to only get the tip of the nipple in their mouths and now my nipples are bruised and very VERY sore. I usually breastfeed them at the same time using a twins nursing pillow. I've noticed that when I get the chance to feed them one at a time and I use the cradle hold, it hurts a bit less. It seems easier for them to get more of my nipple in their mouths that way.
Any ideas on getting them to latch correctly every time instead of just once in a while? This is painful!
