Re: what to do when baby favors one side?

I don't blame you for wanting to steer clear of the shields if you can, I have known a few mamas who had problems weaning off them.

do you have a breast pump? If she is having trouble latching, you could try and pump that side for a moment to sort of extend the nipple itself a little.

Breastfeeding.com has a great section of videos showing what a proper latch looks like and how to obtain it, maybe that will help? http://www.breastfeeding.com/helpme/helpme_video.html
