Get the book: Breastfeeding Made Simple: Seven Natural Laws. So helpful!
As far as nipple tenderness: I was miserable for the first month. I was wearing a nursing tank instead of an actual nursing bra. Didn't realize how much it wasn't supporting my now D-sized breasts. My nipples were getting rubbed inside the tank. The day after I started wearing a real nursing bra (and holding those puppies still!), my nipples finally quit hurting when he nursed! May not be a problem for you, but just thought I'd mention it!
