My baby will not latch on, how can I get her to latch on again?

It could be that your milk let down is too fast or too slow, making her fussy. If it is too fast, put her on, quickly take her off (using the little finger release), and squirt the milk into a muslin/breast pad to release the pressure and then pop her back on again. This happened to me a lot!

If it is too slow, she will be struggling to get the milk and getting frustrated. You could first hand express a little into muslin or use a pump.

You can also message Eirini, the Tinto breastfeeding specialist! She is amazing and will be able to help you with positions etc.
