Newborn forgetting how to latch?

I'm having some stressful situations! My one month old seems to 'forget' how to latch properly after switching from one breast to the other. He will just sit there whining and then he breaks out into a full-on cry session. I don't understand what's happening and I'm literally to a point where I'm going to stop breastfeeding. This is a daily issue and I can't deal with it anymore. Please help...some advice or something before I lose ny mind! So stressed!

I don't know if we could be having the same issue, but when I give my child one side he always has a more difficult time. My breastfeeding consultant said they normally favor one side rather than the other and that could be why. She had me put him in the football position for the side he would not latch onto, and it helped a bit.
