Breastfeeding latch

Home More advice Kids

I had my daughter on tuesday. When she latches on it hurts so bad. After about 60 seconds it no longer hurts. Just the initial latch on hurts. She is latched on correct and positioned correct. So I do not understand the discomfort. I don't have cracked or dry nipples either. It doesn't hurt when I pump with a hand breast pump just when she latches on. I tried to get ahold of a breastfeeding consultant but turned up empty handed and I can't find any answers on the internet. Can someone tell me if the latch on pain in normal, if and when it goes away, and what to do to help it. Thanks in advance.
