This clip shows how, by pushing in the baby's bottom with her forearm (with help), the mother moves the baby around into a more "asymmetric" latch, gets the baby to drink more (more obvious "pauses" at the point of the chin). The mother's right hand should be palm up under the baby's face, rather than on the baby's shoulder.
