I was in the exact same shoes not too long ago myself. So I completely understand. It's hard. BUT it gets easier with time. And once you get that first hard one out of the way, it should be easy breazzy. lol

Sounds like your doing a good job so far. I had the same issues, my nipples cracked and bled for the first week then I started using lanolin and got her latched correctly and they were healed within a week. Mine still hurt sometimes for the first latch but usually when she's really hungry. Your breast will settle in within a few weeks and as your LO gets more experience BFing will get so much easier. Good luck mama!!!!
