We use a nipple shield and it is what saved me from giving up. I don't know if it was his latch or my nipples, but I was in tears trying to feed him by the third day. The latch looked okay, so idk. then my milk came in and he seemed to get frustrated with the fullness. it was overnight the first night home and I had to give two formula bottles. the next morning we went and got the shield and it's been going great since (he's two weeks now). he will latch directly onto me sometimes now if I let him get started with the shield then slip it off once he gets going.
