My DD is now 7 weeks and I've been struggling along with breast feeding. We still have latching on issues - in that she won't open her mouth really wide to get a full mouthful and as such feeds mostly on the nipple causing cracking, grazing, bleeding etc...
This makes it incredibly painful to feed and I dread instead of enjoy it.
I've been to see a lactation consultant a few times and they helped with nipple shields etc but I found using these ineffective as she wasn't putting on weight with them and didn't really like latching onto them (took ages). She said bubs mouth wasn't very big which was why I was having issues in the initial weeks, but I would've thought this would resolve itself by now.
Does anyone have any tips which would help with this? Any advice would be very much appreciated as I am keen to keep breast feeding.
