Do NOT let her to continue to latch wrong or you'll end up in so much pain that you'll dread breastfeeding and feel like quiting. Express some milk on your nipple to get her to open her mouth, pull her chin down to open more and RAM (rapid arm movement) her on. If she doesn't get it right, try it again. I made the mistake with my first, letting him nurse wrong because I was happy he was nursing at all. It was sheer toe - curling, sobbing misery. Google videos on YouTube for proper latching. Let me look for links...

Ditto what Stacy said. Try touching her nose with your nipple to make her open wide and then pull her to you close and quick
