Question: Hi my baby is not latching breast milk ...so what can i do plz suggest me
Answer: Hi dear, congratulations on your baby!! I know breastfeeding is not all easy as it seems. And as baby and you both are new in this so both will be facing difficulty. Here are some tips to help baby latching. Make sure to keep fingers far from the nipple so you don't affect how the baby latches on. Aim the nipple toward the baby's upper lip/nose, not the middle of the mouth. You might need to rub the nipple across the top lip to get your baby to open his/her mouth. The baby's head should be tilted slightly back. Hope this will help.
