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. You need to check the flow of your milk. If it is less, you take care of your diet. You should also feed on both the sides for equal duration, that is 10 minutes at one side and another 10 minutes on the other side. It is better to avoid bottle feeding is it may create nipple confusion and poses hygiene issues.
