My daughter is a week old and I am having a hard time with the breastfeeding. I have not stopped even though my nipples hurt so bad I want to cry everytime she feeds. I have been using the lanalin. I did speak with a lactation consultant who told me she was not getting enough in her mouth and helped me. I was fine during that feeding but went right back to the pain the next time. I have tried pumping and that went ok except its like she is not getting enough, so I would also give her a little formula. Does anyone know what I can do to stop the pain?
