(((hugs))) to both of you (and anyone else with a new baby).
There is great info here! I just wanted to add my favorite link for info on the asymmetric latch-- this is what gets the baby on the breast properly.
Almost always, I've found that a tiny change in the way the baby was positioned or latched on makes all the difference in the world between nursing easily and nursing in pain. Please *call* an LLL Leader. She can help you find just the right position/latch for your baby. Breastfeeding is "natural", but it's a learned art for both you and the baby!
