Don't worry.First make baby latch on to nipples properly. Nipples should b between baby's gums & if u feel nipples tightly held in between gums that means baby has latched properly .U should b relaxed completely mentally & physically before feeding , sit comfortably in a chair or on bed keep a soft pillow in ur lap & lay baby on it for comfortable feeding also hold baby strongly in ur hands but it should not hurt baby & next latch properly baby on to nipples usually by this age newborns suck properly but don't worry as baby learns to hold nipples gradually aerola will also go inside mouth & baby also will try to hold on to breasts & feed.Hope all these help u.
Hey Darshana thanks for quick replying. As you said have intially feed him with nipples only & sometimes was using nipple shield. But before few days have consulted dr and I came to know he's not gaining weight so Dr suggested to latch with aerola. So now am facing this :)
It's ok Rims don't worry .As baby grows & sucks more aerola will automatically go inside mouth. Keeping feeding every 2 hours & whenever needed.Dont b stressed. Increase ur quantity of healthy food , sleep & take rest whenever possible , drunk lots of water all these will help baby in increasing weight.Also u can take help of lactation consultant if needed .
