    You shouldn't have to be getting into weird positions to feed, surely? :think:

    Sounds really obvious but have you tried using a cushion or a different feeding position so the boob just goes in instead of being squished around? The way my midwife tried to get me to do just didn't work for me, and the way she said wouldn't work did :D

    The rugby hold one on the 2nd link is what apparently works best for big boob ladies (iykwim) ...

    Other than that I don't know what to suggest :( Hope that helps a little.. or at least gives you some ideas if nothing else.
