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 can take help of lactation expert in hospital for this too. For the time being you can express the milk either by clean hands or by using a breast pump. This can be fed to the baby with sterilised katori and spoon.
