It's pretty common what you're going through, even if your baby has the best latch. Your best bet: go get some lansinoh cream. Slather it all over your nips before/after nursing and anytime you need it inbetween. Breastfeeding is difficult but very rewarding! Just power through it and try to adjust her to see if it helps. Make sure her upperlip isn't curled under (if it is just gently pop it out, that will help her get a deeper latch!) It can be sore and uncomfortable for a couple of weeks then one day it doesn't hurt anymore.. Good luck!
