Latching on and: other techniques for successful nursing are easier to show than to describe in words. I suggest you contact the hospital where your baby was born and find out if they can direct you to a Lactation Consultant or La Lache League member. I very much admire your desire and willingness to breast feed. It's hard work! Dr. Anne
