This is FAR worse on the left than the right. The left makes FAR more milk than my right and has for all three kids. The milk coming out of the left when I pump has an orangy tint to it and is VERY thick.
I have a hard time getting my guy to give me a big open mouth on my left side - perfect on the right, can't figure that one out. I have been letting him latch as best as he can and then taking my thumb and rolling it under his chin to pull it down and flange his lower lip out. The latch is still not perfect. It is not painless, not sure if that is because my nipple has not quite healed from the first couple of days of nipple shredding that occurred in the hospital. If I do the cradle hold, my nipple looks like a tube of lipstick when he is done.
