lip tapping technique
Tapping the baby’s lower lip help them open their mouth wide before latching. On this video of a visit with a boober lactation consultant, an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) shows a mom of a 6-week old how to tap her baby’s lower lip right before latching the baby on. This tapping can help the baby open their mouth wider, to help get a deeper latch. Learn more by watching our video below.
