Breastfeeding hurts in the beginning for a lot of new mommies because they're learning how to do it correctly.
I couldn't agree more!! I BF DD for 6 months then gave up. The pain never got better and I couldn't take it any longer. I visited the lactation consultant several times and I still was never 100% pain free. I so desperately wanted to love nursing, but instead I felt guilty and hated it. I hope it comes much easier this time around!!
