Agree about the lanolin!

If you're baby isn't latching properly proceed with caution pumping and introducing bottles.

Try pumping for a bit to let your nipples heal. Also, use lanolin and do not wash your breasts with soap as this will cause more of a problem, for you.

Your baby also may not be latching correctly, there should be no real pain at all (there is some pain but nothing "agonizing"). Have you consulted a lactation nurse? They are quite helpful. If your baby is still not latching correctly, you may want to talk to his pediatrician, your baby could be tongue tied, mine was.
