Poky little nipple hanger...

My two week old is giving me fits. I b/f dd for 15 months, and the new one is making me crazy. At first he latched on so vigorously it left me with blisters. They went away, but not before he barely would latch on to the nipple causing blinding pain when nursing. Re-latching frustrates both of us, and I can't get him to do it "my way" haha. PLUS, I am a 40 DD bra size, so the concept of latching on for him is much like getting a goldfish to suck on a bowling ball.
Next problem is he is sooo slow! Jenna could finish in 15 minutes on both breasts, but his poky-ness is causing repeated engorgement, and a recent bout of mastitis. Stroking his feet, neck, back etc. only makes him more sleepy. Since he doesn't get much before falling asleep, he's hungry 30 minutes later.
So here I am, sore, leaking, and ready to go full time pumping. Any ideas or BTDT support?
