Latching can take some time and patience. Firstly do not use a bottle to feed the baby. Next try and latch when the baby is not very hungry so baby will show more interest. Massage the breast and express a little so that milk flow has started when you bring baby on the breast to get started. And yes seek help from a lactation expert. For latch issues it would be best to meet someone face to face.
