A relative of mine is breastfeeding her first. Her daughter is 13 months and now has four teeth. She doesn't seem to be latching on properly and the mum finds feeding painful. It's not so much biting as the way the baby feeds. She has been to the breastfeeding clinic and the nurse said her daughter is too far down on the nipple and not taking enough milk into her mouth before swallowing. Is there any advice on how to get her daughter to change her the way she latches on? Is it too late to change at 13 months? The mum wants to continue feeding but is finding it quite painful.
