I'm glad you figured it out. And I completely agree, sometimes the smallest little tweak changes the whole thing. Quite amazing really.
She's tried different positions.
She is wondering if she can stop the session after 10 mins or so and offer a paci to see if he is just looking for sucking comfort. I can't see this going well for milk production but she is desperate.
She has two other children through adoption whom she didn't nurse. They are wonderfully happy and healthy and I think she wants the experience, but she's not against stopping if its frustrating. I really want to help her be successful.
***Btw- i am not anti formula, my ds2 was ff after 5 weeks because that's what we needed to be happy. I just meant that I don't know how strong her will to nurse is and sometimes we need that will. I hope that doesn't sound insensitive.
