LO won't open mouth

I'm a FTM and my LO is 2 and a half weeks old. He's always had a pretty shallow latch but it hasn't always hurt. The past few days though have been excruciating. He doesn't open his mouth wide and I have no idea how to encourage him to get it open wider. He also only opens his mouth for a split second at a time so getting him to latch at all is an ordeal. Any advice on getting his mouth open wider? Or just longer so I can maneuver him to my breast properly?
He's gaining weight well so I know he's getting enough milk but my nipples can't take much more of this.
