This is a great article. I agree with all of the points, especially the one about the pain being temporary. I know that I nearly gave up after a week because I was so sore. However, after working with an LC for our latch issues, that pain went away and we've had a successful breastfeeding relationship since - with NO pain! :smileyhappy:
