So tommorow my LO will be 7 weeks old, and she is breastfed, hasnt had one drop of formula :)
My problem is we are still having latch issues. She had her tongue and lip tie clipped, and we have seen the lactation consultant 3 times. I still cant get a deep enough latch with her.
I have spent a lot of time researching, and I think I pinpointed the problem.... The whole "chin first, top second" to get the babies mouth up and over the nipple, and deeper into the mouth.... I cant seem to accomplish it. It has gotten better, but I still get a slight crease in the top of my nipple that is starting to blister, and a bit of pain. I need this to get better, because I cant live in pain all the time!
Please give me tips on a deeper latch! I do the breast sandwich, and try to get her bottom jaw on first but just seem to fail time and time again! Plus I cant get her to open her mouth very wide!!!!
