    Default Appearance of nipples

    I have noticed that my nipples are 'bumpy' with many 'fissures'...is this normal or should they be smooth? I have dealt with Thrush and Mastitis and poor latch...is it the result of these?

    This "textured" surface to the nipple sounds pretty normal to me, unless you are seeing raw or broken places in the skin. I've heard nursing mothers compare their nipples to the bumpiness of a raspberry; does that make sense with what you are seeing? I know with a thrush infection you are probably dealing with a lot of irritation and inflammation.

    Yes...that is what I am seeing - thanks for the reassurance
