I read somewhere as baby gets bigger they dont need to have as deep a lacth as newborns..how true is that?


Update on us....my pump broke (ameda..used) and so my supply is horribly suffering, we are now at part time breast and part time bottle....hurts my heart I dont have the strength to nurse exclusively but I just could not bare the constant clamping all the time.

No, though sometimes older babies get lazy and need to be reminded to latch deeper

No, a good latch is a good latch and and bad latch is bad. No matter what age, baby should always have most of the areola in his mouth while nursing.

Does your baby have lip or tongue ties?

They still need a deep latch.

Yes in fact all three top and bottom lip ties and a posterior tongue tie.

Quoting MusherMaggie: Does your baby have lip or tongue ties?
