Hey Steph. If you scroll down the list you have to use to get to the March DDC there is also a Breastfeeding forum. You might try there for some answers. Hope things are going well with your l/o. :)

Hi steph! My son was born at 35+1 and his latch was perfect from the beginning. We have had absolutely no issues with bfing. The only time he ever had a hard time latching on was when I got super engorged. Good luck with your baby girl!

My daughter wasn't a preemie per say, but she was the size of one. We had to use a nipple shield for about 12 weeks until her mouth was big enough to take in my whole nipple. Good luck mama.
