I have blessed baby girl a week ago. But she didn't start to suck her mother's nipple properly. So her mother is unable to give proper breast feeding. What can be done? Please suggest

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 her mouth. The mother may hold your nipple between her fingers and help the baby to take it in mouth. You can take help of lactation expert in hospital for this too.
