Answer:
you have to help your baby in latching which means that the baby should be able to take in the entire nipple, along with maximum of aerola (dark) region in his mouth. You may hold your nipple between your fingers and help the baby to take it in mouth. You should also try and keep the baby awake while feeding. You can take help of lactation expert in hospital for this too.
