I had pain for at least 4-5 weeks with my ds1 & dd2. Pushed through and it slowly got better. Pain would go all the way down to my toes. It was horrible! Just took a while for my nipples to get used to being sucked on and wet so many times a day. Are you using the lanisol cream? It was a lifesaver for me. Piled it on after every feed and it helped with the pain of breast pads touching my nipples too.

Thank you so much for all the replies, truly, it helps so much just to know there are people who care here on the hub and who offer genuine advice.
I've just finished a marathon 3 hour feeding session, my nipples are dead and I'm exhausted but will post a longer reply later. But for now thank you for all the advice, I've read and reread all your replies and will take it all on board.
