She doesn't have the asymmetrical latch. If anything, she puts more of her mouth on top than on bottom. This is not comfortable for me most of the time. I've tried putting her body further down my body to try to encourage her to tilt her head back more, but this usually results in her digging her upper teeth into my breast, trying to keep her latch. I've tried tilting her head/neck, but she just fights me and puts it back. She's got a strong latch, and I hate to force her to let go because it's a fight, and it really hurts. She has a whole lot of teeth and a strong jaw.
She also has a habit, perhaps because of her latch, of latching on and then pulling her head away from my breast to nurse, tugging on my nipple. If I hold her up against me, she usually fights me.
I have really tough nipples, which is probably why I haven't done anything about this until now. It hasn't hurt until now, and now it's hard to make changes (DD is 20 months old). I want to continue nursing until weaning happens naturally, and DD is nowhere near ready to wean. Maybe it's just such a problem because DD has been nursing like 8-10 hours a day this week, but both my nipples really hurt, and I just don't want to feel this way about nursing my toddler. Any ideas?
