Here's the thread if you want to view it:

I called my LC and she thinks that either I am putting my nipple in crooked or that it's being pulled through the holes. She's suggested I try a few more times making sure my nipple is centered well and see if the damage gets worse. And then if it gets worse I'll know that it's being sucked through the holes and that we will discuss another option.
You're such a trooper! I'll be praying for things to smooth out and resolve quickly for you. :-)
