Deeper Latch

During consults, I often ask people to think back to geometry class...remember "obtuse angles"? When a baby is latched deeply to the breast, the corner of their mouths should be "greater than" 90 degrees (like 120 degrees!). It's a quick visual!

My quick tips for a deeper latch...nipple to nose, swipe, wait for a wide open mouth, then tuck baby in between the shoulder blades and take them back with you! Gravity works in your favor & you should be comfortable too (no sore backs or shoulders allowed ;)
