I'm thinking of you and baby! Breastfeeding can be so challenging. I shed a lot of tears while getting the hang of things with DS1. He had a horrible latch in the hospital and tore my nipples up. We started using a nipple shield and it really helped us get established. He refused to nurse without it for 6 weeks, which was quite annoying, but it really helped me continue to try to breastfeed (I wasn't stressed out about him latching and killing my nipples). 
I hope you find some relief hug2.gif
