My LO just got back to breastfeeding (he is two months) following two frenectomies for tongue tie. We are just getting to know one another in terms of at-the--breast behavior. I still need to work on his latch (he slips to shallow) but I've also noticed he has incredibly forceful/aggressive sucking (it takes my breath away), particularly when he is irritable or gassy. Does anyone else have this happen and if so, is there anything I can do? I believe it is partially the culprit to my nipple pain (thrush and less than perfect latch being the other likely candidates). He has a difficult time opening his mouth wide at the breast and I always have to help him widen his latch.
