As the PPs have said, it does get better!
But HAM, I'd urge you to get Feldman to get you in to the Goldfarb Breastfeeding Clinic run out of the Herzl. They're the best in town. I learned a whole new latch technique the other day that is SO much easier and less painful and results in Daniel swallowing less air. Honestly, this clinic has a world class reputation. It took me only 2 or 3 days from the time my Herzl doctor referred me to the clinic to the time they called with a last-minute cancellation and asked if I could go in that afternoon. I was there for an hour with an expert Lactation Consultant. I'd already seen an LC on my own at home in the previous weeks, but the ones at the clinic are the top of the top.
All this aside, I can really relate to major breast pain. I recall crying hard through many of Daniel's first and second week nursings. It was really challenging. Now I'm pain free! We have all kinds of other issues (persistent thrush, colic, reflux...) but my breasts are not hurting on latch-on at all.
but she's got such a tiny mouth it's hard to know if I'm doing it right, and my anxiety over feeding probably doesn't help...
What are shells?
Can you get some of those gel pads - soothies gel pads i think they're called? If you can get something similar at a drug store, stick them in the fridge and use them on your breasts after you nurse - it helps.
