You want your baby's mouth to be wide open before she latches on. Move your nipple lightly across the her upper lip, from one corner of her mouth to the other. Once she opens her mouth wide, bring the baby straight onto the breast, with a brisk movement of your whole arm; keep pushing her bottom into your body. As you bring the baby toward the breast, her chin should touch the breast first. Her nose should not touch your breast expect for extreme cases when the breast is unusually large. Keep her lower lip as far below the base of your nipple as possible so her tongue draws lots of your breast into her mouth. Your baby's bottom lip should cover more of the areola than the top lip.
