You can do it!: Just remember women have been breastfeeding for millions of years! You want to get the tip of your nipple in the back of the baby's mouth, so he can compress your milk ducts adequately. Make sure he opens wide before you bring him in to the breast. A slight pinch at the beginning of feeding is ok, if a feeding is persistently painful stop and reposition. Get help with a lactation specialist
