I have an 8 week old baby, who won't latch on after being off for a few days. I was instructed by LC at 5 weeks to discontinue direct breastfeeding due to deep fissures on both nipple probably caused by baby's "bubble palete". After a few days of healing we tried to latch back on with no luck. Now after 3 weeks we get an occasional success about every other day one time. This is very frustrating and wondering if anyone has a similar experience. I also am very sore from just one latch on and partial feeding. I am pumping for now but would love to get my baby back on the breast. I am concerned with continued damage as my nipples are permanently scarred from original weeks.
