So every time i feed my baby girl my nipples hurt butt only for a few seconds & then it doest cause i know Shea latched on properly . (Finally the baby got the hang of latching on right, YAAY ! ) when she first latches on it feels like my nipples are being torn off !! Is it cause my nipples are sore or why is it ?

mine started to toughen up at 2 weeks and by 3 or 4 that initial pain was totally gone.

I had this same experience.  It just took my nipples a while to toughen up - around 6-8 weeks.  Things that helped included lanolin and putting a bit of breastmilk on my nipple after a feed and letting them air dry.
