My wife is nursing her first baby as well.. It seems that she's gotten the hang of it, and so has the baby.. But it was hit and miss and worrying when she didn't lactate for almost 3 days :/ I guess that was normal though..
Everything seems to be fine now.
How does your wife breastfeed? While lying in bed? In a chair? A rocking chair?
My wife has found the most comfortable is in the rocking chair for her back. We didn't have the foresight to get one of those horseshoe shaped nursing pillows either, but I bet that would have helped...
