Hi my Bay is not latchinh not properly. She is pulling herself from breast everytime when I try to feed her. What I observed 8s that she wants to do shallow latch and just suck the nipples and go off to sleep and not deep latch. Though she is hungry she will not latch properly and this is happening from last 2 weeks. Kindly help me as I ma very much worried.

Hi try different positions, and make sure there is no disturbance while feeding her. You can also try lying down.

Ur baby is 3 months? By now latching must have developed.. right?? Is she crying? What about wet diapers or toilet ur baby is doing? Is she gaining wt?

#Akanksha Gulati no she have hardly gained 100 gms in lst 2 weeks with merely 3 4 wet diapers.. Pead now suggested me strt top feed nd keep trying latching.... Nd she was latching properly.. All of a sudden didn't knew wht hpnd

#rebeccaprakash I hv tried side lying position but I unable to achieve deep latching..

Make sure that your baby when she is trying to latch her nose is not getting pressed
