Deep Latch-On

It is called breastfeeding, not nipple feeding, for a reason. If your baby's latch is shallow — not deep onto the areola, he may appear to be "hanging" on the nipple tip. When this occurs, the baby will not be able to remove milk from your breast very well. This would decrease the amount of milk your baby drinks, so feedings may take more than 45 minutes and your baby may not gain weight as he/ should. Also, your nipples are more likely to become very sore or cracked.
