Can't get my newborn to latch properly and my nipples are killing me!
My daughter is 4 days old. I breastfed my son as well, so I'm trying all of the tricks I learned with him to help her latch properly. She is much smaller than he was and has a very tiny mouth, while I have large areoles and nipples. She is putting her tongue underneath my nipple, but her tongue is so tiny that it doesn't cover her gums. She is clamping down with her gums (ouch) and her lips aren't positioned around the nipple properly. Breastfeeding her is very painful, and I'm worried my milk supply is going to not do as well without a proper latch, if that is even possible? Any thoughts or suggestions?
