How old? Describe the pain and location. Has the latch been evaluated or checked for tongue tie?

Try a different position. I always had to do the football hold when my baby was first born or his latch would have been funny.

This!
How old is the baby? Is the pain in the breast or the nipple? If it is the nipple, does it go away after a bit or hurt throughout the feeding?

It also could be your letdown. Some of us have quite painful letdowns for a while, but it usually lessens (or even goes away) over time.

The white bumps are blocked ducts I believe.
Sounds like a strong letdown

Where are you, OP? We need more specifics from you to be helpful.

She emailed me this earlier. I'm thinking blocked glands and letdown?

Well two weeks it started as some round ball inside the nipple area and wen i squeezed it it spread and it hurts and tickles wen my baby feeds,around the nipple area,not yet checked
