For me the line is true. Once dd1 and I sorted out attachment there was no pain.
I knew what to do with dd2 so there was no pain from the beginning just the usual initial discomfort of nipples in use.

Despite the fact that I have had a good latch from the get go with both my babies, I had numerous problems and immense pain with both. I went on to exclusively breastfeed both, but it took a good 3 months for each to settle down and become pain free.
- baaaad nipple trauma. Five yrs on one of my nipples still has a scar from the huge crack he left.
- recurring thrush
- tongue tie (undiagnosed)
- again, nipple trauma. This probably wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't gone against my gut and used a nipple shield to give my nipples a break. The nipple shield made things far worse and opened up a big crack. Nipple shields helped with my son, not with my daughter.
- staph infection in my nipple due to the cracks.
- tongue tie and upper lip tie
In hindsight, everyone saying 'you must be doing it wrong'. NOT TRUE!! Nipples do need an adjustment period, in my experience.
