My dd is two weeks old and up until now, breastfeeding has been really easy for us. She was latching on beautifully with a bit of assistance from the very beginning then took over and would latch on well if I got her mouth to my nipple.
This weekend, so about four days ago, she started taking less areola into her mouth but it didn't hurt so I didn't mind; I could still hear her sucking and swallowing with no problem so didn't worry. About the same time she started taking more time to latch on, bouncing her head on and off my nipple, licking it, etc, but then attaching.
Now she is taking even less areola and almost only nipple and it's getting quite painful. She won't let me help latch anymore, she just fusses if I try.
Any ideas on what I can do to correct her attachment, or is it just something I need to get used to?!
