Answer: U need more patients untill he latches properly,try to make him to latch as much as possible,,don't get depressed or lose hope , depression is also one of the cause for reducing breast milk, It happens with some babies too,, it's quite normal,,untill he latches properly, try to use breast pump and feed him,,the more you pump or the more baby sucks , creates more milk.

    But he doesn't take the whole areola part inside the mouth. He just takes the nipple and keeps sucking. His mouth is too small to take the entire part. And even the grip is weaker. I have seen a lot of videos on YouTube but nothing is working!
