Place a bowl of water in the bottom of the oven when you bake your bread; this will produce a steamier atmosphere and a softer crust.
Also, immediately cover the loaves when you take them out of the oven with a very damp tea towel to produce the steam effect.

Worth a try.
Make your dough a bit softer (ie. more water or milk) The t-towel is a must.
