Re: wieght check/ Nipple Pain/ Good Latch?
This sounds like something people call the 30 second sizzle (or 10 second sizzle, or 60 second sizzle, depending on the mom). Basically what is happening is that when the baby first latches on, the latch isn't quite deep enough to get the nipple into the ideal position, on the back of the tongue underneath the soft palate. Instead, it's closer to the front of the tongue, underneath the hard palate, and when the baby sucks the nipple gets compressed and hurt. But after a few sucks- say 10-60 seconds, the baby draws the nipple deeper into his mouth and into the ideal position, at which point the pain stops.

But it wouldn't hurt to experiment with different nursing positions, particularly reclined ones, and to try something called the nipple sandwich technique (this is a decent explanation: https://www.pumpstation.com/pumpstat...p?dept_id=3228).
