Bad latch on one side?

Maggie's latch has recently gone to absolute hell.....but ONLY on my right side, which is her preferred side. I'm to a point that I dread putting her to that breast, because I know it is going to hurt and I will have to take her off and try to get her properly latch numerous times. I can see the tips of her two bottom teeth under her gum; could teething be the culprit?

Yes indeed. Teething rememdies first, and be prepared to do lots of correcting.

Ok, I just didn't know if teething would cause a bad latch on only one side. This just sucks. Literally. Lol. Especially since it's her preferred side with the bad latch.

Teething can cause some issues. Prayers for you mama!

Every new tooth it seems like we have issues for a day or 3.

No experience with teething yet, but could you find a different position maybe that it wouldn't hurt as badly?
