Baby crushing my

It feels like my baby is crushing one of my nipples by gumming it to death. I've tried changing the latch and getting more in my baby's mouth but I'm wondering if it is a size issue. We are at five weeks now. Will this get any better with time or will her mouth grow?

I would get in to see an IBCLC for hands on help. Locally, all the ones at the hospitals will see anyone, not just mamas who birthed there. Sounds like you need some latch help. Sooner is better.
