DD will be 3 in August, so she's still pretty young, IMO.
I think she's forgetting how to latch. She's nursing 3-4 times a day, able to get milk, but her teeth are ending up right where the nipple and areola meet *ouch*
It doesn't help that I'm pregnant and definately have sensitive nipples... but at least 2x a day, i have to ask her to open her mouth wider. After a few seconds, it doesn't hurt, but when she pops off, there are definate teeth marks, and it's sore for a while
The other day, she kept popping on and off and I asked her if there was a hair on the booby (common occurance here
). She said "No, I'm trying to get the WHOLE booby in my mouth."
... so, maybe her molars are coming in?
How do you help correct the latch in a kid that can listen and follow directions? Cause what I'm doing isn't working too well.
