Welcome to Mastering New Motherhood
with Nikos Varakis, MD IBCLC
Interview above and a latching video below.
This is a video that demonstrates a poor latch when a baby latches to the tip of the
nipple. The baby will not get much milk and it will be very painful for the mother.
When the baby latches further back on the aerola, then the baby
gets more milk and it is much more comfortable.
