AP Mom to 5
I had the latch issue with my first, and then again with this one.
A couple of tricks: Open her mouth gently with your thumb to show her what you want her to do. (You can try to insert your nipple while you are doing this.) Also: This actually works: Make "boobie mouth" yourself by opening your mouth wide and sticking out your tounge. Eventually she will learn to do "boobie mouth" on command when you ask her to. (It happens faster than you think-my newborn already mimics my facial expressions at 2 weeks old.)
