Discomfort when baby comfort nurses. — The Bump

Discomfort when baby comfort nurses.

LO is 5 months and we had a rough breast feeding relationship (ties,revision, slow weight gain, poor latch etc). She has been doing great for months now. My only thing is when she is comfort nursing (before a nap or when she isn't really hungry) she latches shallowly and it's rather uncomfortable on my left side especially. When she is actively eating I can hear her swallow and the latch seems deeper and there isn't any discomfort. Do I pop her off when she is doing this or not since she wants comfort? I know she is getting a little bit of milk when she comfort nurses but I am tired of her essentially biting/clamping down.
