I know, this is such an odd question but this is what we are dealing with.
My ds is 8.5 weeks and bf'ing is going very well (he is 13 pounds, up from 6.11 at birth) and I guess things were going so well that I got a little lazy and let him latch on in an unconventional way a couple times too many and now he seems to have developed a habit.
Instead of opening his mouth wide, he opens it a little and kind of sucks my nipple and some of the areola into his mouth- but he's not getting enough of the aereola in and my nips are on and off sore.
So, how do I "re-train" him to do this properly? He looks at me like I'm crazy when I take the nipple out and touch his lower lip with it.
What was I thinking??
