My newborn finally latched on and is breastfeeding very well after being a week old. Is he not latching on good enough if my nipples hurt when he latches on.. Will they stop hurting after awhile??

Phoenix is right it does take time to get the hang of it and it will stop hurting but that takes time too, for me it took a few weeks maybe even a bit longer

Sometimes it takes a while to get te hangof breast feeding. If you dot think he is latching on right try calling for local lactation nurse and organise for her to come have a visit. By any chance is he making a clicking sort of sound when he is feeding or milk leaking out while he is feeding ? I ask this as I had problems with #4 teaching on and it would be painful she also got alotof wind problems and it turned out she was tongue tied
