 My son was born at 32 weeks and did not nurse at all for 19 days.He was able to suck,swallow and breath but the hospitals ped. wouldnt let us nurse. He will latch on (after weeks of help from a lactation consultant) but it is still pretty painful and he has a hard time staying latched on. Has anyone gone through this? How do you get them to stay latched on?

Practice. That's really the only thing you can do. Is it hurting througha  nrusing? If so, then he may be tongue tied.
