Are there any video clips on you tube or elsewhere that are recommended to show how to hold or position the baby to get a good latch?
Dd is 2 weeks old and my left nipple is getting very sore. That side is bigger, I have big boobs anyway and I think that's making it trickier.

This is the one we use at our local BF group

No link - but I had a similar issue and was told to move baby further over so nose to nipple happened without me holding the breast. This worked for me.....

( that makes my boobs sound really wonky!)blush

This is a really good one

I was going to try and explaine but I'm not good with words watch the video. Oh and try to find your local BF group if you have one, go along and get some more one to one help with latch.

Good luck.

Go on You Tube and search for latching on and there are some really really good videos (you have to see through the corny americaness).

I have big boobs and also found latch on hard (actually turned out to be tongue tie that was giving me the real probs though).

You might find exaggerated attachment, page 10 in this leaflet useful.

Thank you everyone, am still trying to get it right but am getting there I think!
The exaggerated attachment page was massively helpful, thank you smile
