My son was born Tuesday and latched well three times right away. Suddenly he started tucking his bottom lip/chin in very tightly, making a decent latch almost impossible and causing all kinds of pain and leaving me with bleeding, compressed nipples.
The lactation consultant said to just tug his lip out when he latched, but that's not working (he's too strong - tugging hard enough to loosen his lip breaks the latch entirely).
My milk is now in and I can pump successfully (3 oz first try), but I would like the convenience of nursing without pumping into a bottle first. Any ideas?
