It takes some time to learn to breastfeed a newborn baby appropriately because both you and your baby are not used to it.
Sometimes the baby can't latch on to the breast well, or can't keep sucking.
If the following signs are present, then there is a possibility that your baby is not latching on well.
If your baby can't latch on well, your nipples may hurt after breastfeeding or your breasts may feel engorged because enough breastmilk wasn't taken.
