  • Latch (breastfeeding)

    Latch refers to how the baby fastens onto the breast while breastfeeding. How the baby latches is more important than how the baby is held during nursing. A good latch means that the bottom of the areola (the area around the nipple) is in the baby's mouth and the nipple is back inside his or her mouth, where it's soft and flexible. A shallow, or poor, latch happens when the baby does not have enough of the breast in his/her mouth or is too close to the tip. A shallow latch causes the sensitive nipple skin to press against the bones in the top of the baby's mouth. That can cause the development of cracked nipples. The nipples are sore, and bleed.
