Baby 28 Hours Old Assisted Latching
Shows latching on. Not perfect, but good enough. The mother had no
pain. It did take two tries to get the baby to latch on, but that’s
okay; there’s no point in trying to force a baby who does not take the
breast to stay on the breast. It won’t work. Note the baby has an
“asymmetric” latch, with the chin touching the breast, the nose not
touching the breast, and he covers more of the areola with his lower lip
than the upper.
Compressions help the baby get more milk.
