Hii. .my baby is 7 day old. she does not latch directly to my nipples. She starts crying when I am going to connect her to breast.can anyone suggest something...

Hi dear try to make her comfortable see in which position is she comfortable lap or feed her while sleeping. Its breatfeeding week going on and there are lot of session on daily bases on our app do attend them.

Give her some time . It takes time for the child to get used to latching. But do not stop trying. In a few days she will latch properly

As your baby is new born and you are a new born mother so you both need time and you both are struggling for perfection in breastfeed. My baby is just 3 and half months old when I started feeding she did the same, initially I got panic but I decided to keep trying and I gave time and tried many ways and now she is only on breastfeed.
Don't give her only bottle feed else she'll not try to latch. Don't feed her while sleeping and try to get a proper and comfortable posture for you both. All the best and keep trying with patience because it is very normal.

It's very normaas you are a new will take a few days but don't stop breastfeeding. Your baby will be able to latch..don't worry
