Give it time
I had a hard time getting baby to latch but mostly on one side.
I exclusively pumped for weeks, then would try regularly as baby was growing. I decided to let myself heal and just pumped one side and nursed on the other.
At about 4-5 weeks I purchased a nuk nipple shield to help baby nurse and it worked.
Finally week 7/8 he didn't need the shield anymore and we were both comfortable nursing on both sides. During this whole time baby was growing well. Praise the Lord. Keep it up mamas, you can do it!!
