I like others hated it at first... It was a massive struggle for me incl split nipples, vasospasms and 2 hr long feeds... Then at about 3 months it suddenly got better! There was no more pain... I learnt how to latch him properly while lying down and he went from loooong feeds to maybe 10 mins each side.... He weaned at 18 months and nearly two months later I miss it and find myself finding excuses to give him one last feed (I haven't given in yet though)
I personally loved the special snuggles and secretly loved that no one could comfort him like I could!
