Q&A: Better latching techniques?

I think my baby sucks on just my nipple -- not my areola. How can I get him to take more of my breast into his mouth?

The easiest way to help baby take the breast deeper is to lean back, make your breast available to your baby, and let your baby make his own way to the breast. Called "laid-back breastfeeding," this position takes advantage of gravity to pull the baby farther onto the breast. It is also less work, because your body supports your baby's weight, making feeding times much more relaxing and restful.
