Re. Opening their mouths, honestly it was partly fear on my part of damaging them. I've tried as you suggested and managed to get them to latch but they fall off within a few seconds.
Re. Whelping progression, yes I did my research! Having re-read my post I sounded a lot more clueless than I was! What had confused me was that Labradors usually have big litters but that Lottie was very settled and didn't look as though she was still in labour. There weren't any obvious complications hence not calling the vet at that stage but having lurked on here and read the forums I thought someone might have an idea re the latching. Off to the vet now with all 3 of them for a checkup (am in the UK and it's 9.30am)
Thanks for the advice. I suspect I may be back with more questions over the next few days!
