Problem latching

Hi I just gave birth one week ago and have stopped latching as my nipples hurt a lot when baby latches even though it seems like she is latching correctly sometimes. What should I do to help her latch and ease my pain? I have been pumping but noticed white spots on my nipples too. Is it sign of clogged ducts? How should I solve this problem :(

Congrats on your new arrival. For me, bub was too small, and most babies will need to learn how to latch. You can do baby led latching. It also depends on the size of bub’s mouth, and your breast size. In the end, im using nipple shield, which has helped me alot.
