Teeth! Oww!!

DD, 13 months, recently cut her top front teeth. For the past few days, nursing has been really uncomfortable. She's not biting me. It's like her teeth are dragging across the top of my nipple with every suck. It hurts more on one side than the other so I don't know what that's about... Any suggestions??

Have you tried different positions or angling her head a little? She might need encouragement to open wide and latch better, since her teeth and gums are probably sensitive right now too.

I have tried breaking the latch and getting her to take more in her mouth, but I will try different angles too. Thanks
