Breastfeeding dont hurt. you might be sore for a few days but painful its not.
I'm scared of not wanting to feed her because how sore I will be
If baby has a correct latch, it doesn't hurt. It's only uncomfortable for the first week. Ask to see a lactation consultant before you leave the hospital. You can also see if there is a breastfeeding support group in your area.
Nipple shields are not used while nursing. You use them to help shape your nipple so it's easier for baby to latch correctly.
Nipple guards help when nipples are cracked, bleeding, etc... regardless of why they are made
There are some with holes to feed baby
