ensure that you have a proper latch.  If you aren't sure how to do this, consult with a lactation specialist.  You will be sore the first several days as your milk comes in and your boobs become engorged, but the more often baby feeds, the easier it will become.  If you have a proper latch and are still in pain, you might want to be checked for thrush.  Which is basically a yeast infection that babies can get in their mouths and pass on to your breasts during nursing.  Breastfeeding IS uncomfortable in the beginning but most women are able to perservere and get past that after the first few weeks.

How long have you been feeding for, is baby latched right and is it pain in the whole breast or nipple area.
