Are you tickling her upper lol with the nip? You literally have to seize the moment and shove your b**b in there as soon as she opens wide. I would nude a shield honestly. It's toe curling pain for a little bit but it will go away

How old is she? Sometimes their mouths are just too small and they need to grow a little bit. That's the problem we had. :/

!! Don't worry about being graceful. If she is getting her wet diapers, she is at least getting what she needs. Make sure her lips are flanged and you just shove it in there... lol :)

Coconut oil will help your nips. When my babies would latch on I would pull on their lips to get them to flare out. Your nips will be sore for a little while. I know it hurts! After nursing express milk on the nip and let air dry then dab in coconut oil and give it time. With my 2nd it took 6 weeks to get nipples of steel

my daughter killed my nipples, to the point they would bleed and i would cry..eventually i gave in and used a nipple sheild..it was the BEST decision ever..i've heard that it can be hard to wean them from a nipple shield but honestly i just stopped it and my nipples didnt hurt anymore..best of luck i totally understand how badly it hurts good luck! :))

Try lanolin. And go without a shirt whenever you can. You can try a shield, but there is a risk of causing nipple confusion with them.
