Congrats so far! Sounds like you've overcome a lot of breastdeeding obstacles. Sometimes, a baby will mimic mama when she says "ahhh..." & opens her mouth.
Is your baby possibly frustrated because she might be wanting your let-down to come quicker or she's over hungry? You may try to offer your breast more often to see if it's hunger or use a warm compress & massage a few minutes before nursing to help stimulate your let-down.
I would encourage you to continue seeing either an LC or an LLL leader. LLL meetings would be a great source of support for you, too.
Here are some extra ideas & resources.
