There's a little one at the end of Bells' thread "breastfeeding the basics. what to expect" at the top of the page. And I'm sure there'll be some on youtube.

I just entered "breastfeeding latching on" on youtube. There are several videos. The Lasinoh one is very good.

Can you express some milk into and around his mouth at the same time. He should start to open his mouth wider to catch it.

I was told to not let him on til his mouth was wide and he would soon learn what to do, Was right as he knows now, No nipple til mouth open :snigger:

If you line him up so that his nose is level with your nipple he'll have to tip his head back and open his mouth wide to have half a chace of reaching it.
