Your body is preparing for the baby. Your boobies will hurt for a long, long time now. You really need to prepare them for breastfeeding. Use a washcloth and rub the nipples daily. Do this a few times each day to toughen them up. Otherwise, once your baby's WET mouth starts to suckle every 2 hours, you're gonna be as sore as possible! And No Pain pills! Baby can't digest pain pills (which will come out in your breast milk). And don't even consider NOT breastfeeding. I think formula leads to problem children. Read about how to prepare for breastfeeding. Do you wanna know what I did so I didn't have to be cut down there?

I disagree with "preparing your nipples." That is not helpful. Having sore or tough nipples doesn't necessary help... might even make it worse.
Please get good support and great information.
