So I'm due to have DS3 in February.

I successfully BF ds1 with no attachment issues.

Ds2 on the other hand had a fair few dramas.

The main issue was that my nipples were the diameter of a 20c coin! The poor guy couldnt get my nipple into his mouth and definitely couldn't get much of the areola in either.

My nipples are just as big now.

How do I help ds3 to be able to attach well? Do nipple shields help? I was in agony due to cracked nipples, and I just want to have a plan of attack should it happen again.

Any clues?
