Re: Nipple Problems
A lot of times when babies are teething, they alter their latch, and that can easily cause a blister. Blisters are painful, but generally if mom watches the baby's latch and makes sure she gets the best one every time, they heal in about a week or even less. In addition, mom can try some most healing techniques, like covering the blister with some lanolin ointment, or she can use a mix of 1% hydrocortisone cream and Bacitracin antibiotic ointment to combat inflammation and infection. One thing she does not have to worry about is the blood hurting the baby. Bloody milk looks kind of gross, but it is fine for the baby to consume it.
Hope she heals quickly! And let us know if she continues to experience problems.
