you could always get a nipple shied to help. neither of my kids could latch right either, after using the shield for 2 months they could latch on themselves.

SOme great animation on how-to on breastfeedingmadesimple.com.

Get a lactation consultant or a la leche league leader to help you...you can find both online.
