He probably was not latching right if it hurt that bad. Breastfeeding is not painful trust me, my nipples are super sensitive & it never hurt me. You can watch video's, i did that before breastfeeding. I watched a whole bunch of video's, it really helpedme prepare. I also had 2 midwives who breastfed all their children, so they had so much advice & tips for me. Although, it was so long ago, i can't remember. The only way you'll be able to do it is through Patience! Women who give up at the first sign of frustration just don't have the patience nesesary to breastfeed, which i think is sad. You HAVE to stay calm & just keep trying & trying. Here is a link to La Leche League. There is SO MUCH great information on this site!!!! It will really help answer a lot of your breastfeedign questions.
