Have you ever heard that breastfeeding shouldn't hurt?
Well, it shouldn't! It should be comfortable, but it isn't always at first for everyone. Almost every breastfeeding mom reports nipple pain in the beginning of breastfeeding. That being said, just because it is common DOES NOT mean it is normal!!! Breastfeeding is not meant to hurt. Pain is a sign that something isn't right, and almost always, that something is baby's positioning is off.
