So frustrating and painful

Ok so I got ds to latch and have been working on the lipstick nipple issue. Yesterday he nursed
twice and the 2nd time he was comfort nursing and sleeping. I did notice a bit of a compressed
nipple look after but it didn't hurt like before. Then at bedtime he tried to latch and the pain was like
a knife through to my core. So I bottle fed. I went to pump and barely made it through that. Even a tee shirt
hurt the red sore damaged nipples. I did saline rinse and the nurture butter and air but still they killed. Then 2 hours later I swear he wanted to nurse. He didn't want a bottle or paci and was rooting like but there was no way I could try. Holding him hurt. So I'm crying. He's crying and I'm thinking this is what I was trying for and now can't do it :(. Not to mention when he was nursing having to follow up 40 min latercw a bottle ( he took 3 oz almost). I'm just not sure how much of all this I can handle. Ugh. Also I got blessed thistle today. How much do I take w the fenugreek?
