I tried to breastfeed the first 3 weeks or so but the pain was so bad I switched to pumping only. My nipples are kind of flat so I used the sheild and I got her to latch right on a few times and it still hurt. Its like she is chewing on my nipple and they look pinched after she is done. Im thinking she is not able to get enough boob in her mouth to properly latch? Also, anyone heard of tonge tie? I really want to master this but its very stressful. Please help..Answer Question
