K so how do I get rid of the chomp suck. Tori has one and I can't even nurse her to well cuz its so painful. I been spoon feeding her and also using a nipple shield. Am hoping my milk comes in soon. It sucks cuz I want to nurse her but 5 mts after I start I have to stop cuz I feel like am gonna pass out from the pain. Am sure my milk will come in soon. My breast are getting all tingly and sore and I can't even touch them. Ahh I don't like this chomp suck!!!

Have you checked for tongue tie, high palate, and cleft of the soft palate? They chomp when their latch is shallow and their tongue is not in the proper position. Have you tried different techniques while latching? Asymmetrical pointing the nipple towards the baby's nose/roof of mouth, sandwiched pointed straight in, reclined with baby on top, baby led latching where baby does the work. You can do some suck/tongue exercises but if it's a tongue tie clipping it usually helps tremendously. Good luck, all 3 of mine have been choppers for tongue tie/high palates and it hurts!!!

What Char said! Absent those problems, correct correct correct. Whenever the latch is bad you correct instantly.

Are y'all home??
What'd the lc say?
Just keep working with her. When she starts, unlatch her and start over. Don't let her get comfortable with it.
Is she still being a sleepy nurser?

yeah I got home lastnight. She is doing much better with being awake while nursing. Am still using the shield cuz when she latches with out it I can't take the pain. She manage to nurse a full 15 mts. Before she wouldn't nurse more then 5. But we have great diaper out put. First day of like was 3 poop 1 pee. And so far today 2 pee 2 poop

Nat, her output is great, so she IS getting something. Is she still passing meconium?

I know that Sarah (gruntlings) has used her pinky finger to work on the suck when she had a chompy baby. Have you tried that?
