using a breast shield to breast feed

I'm currently using a breast shield to breast feed my 1 week old baby.

He could not express milk from the breast directly and hence i had to use the breast shield. after using it for 2 days, i noticed bleeding on my left breast nipple (baby uses it more than the right one

I also use a breast pump to express out milk but that is not causing any affect ( i presume....). my nipples hurt and i am really getting frustrated with all these. kindly suggest a solution. Thanks.
