Latching on?

Now working again after a quiet period
Working with a Dutch/Surinaams family
Mother was left alone to breastfeed in hospital with no instruction about how to latch on
The result being incorrect latch, ( baby sucking only on the nipple), and broken nipples
Now busy teaching correct latch on and waiting for nipples to heal
Expressing milk to increase production and temporary use of nipple shields help
Milk is coming!
