I'm glad she is getting a pump. That is what I had to do...I had bloody nipples those first few days. It was a lot of work, but 24 hours of pumping and fingerfeeding the colostrum to my baby gave my nipples time to heal and it actually helped my milk come in. Now she nurses like a champ. Also, if she has really sore nipples from all that sucking I recommend soothies..you can get them at almost any drug store...they worked miracles for me.
