talk to her,tell her open wide open your mouth & say "aahh." Also can pull down on her chin, pop her bottom lip out after latched

How was birth? Prolonged labor, cone head may mean she needs some CST in order to open wide

As she leans in to latch pull her chin down. It's all about timing there. Good luck, and congeats again!

It's at first. Go and see a lactation consultant tho if you think you aren't getting it right. That's what they're there for! :)
