Re: Breast redness - oversupply?
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby!
What you're describing is a new one for me. When a mom talks about redness, my first thought is mastitis. But with mastitis you'd probably have lumps and pain and perhaps fever, and it probably wouldn't crop up at the same time every day. I'm thinking that maybe this is some sort of transient inflammation related to your breasts being relatively full... But that's really just a guess! Are you a very pale-skinned person? That could make any increased blood flow a lot more visible, and there is something called rusty pipe syndrome which is caused by vascular engorgement related to breastfeeding- but that's not supposed to last more than a week or so into breastfeeding, and it causes reddish milk which you probably would have noticed.
If this isn't causing any problems- no discomfort, no mastitis symptoms- then I'd simply keep an eye on it. Most likely it will pass with time. And if you're feeling full, don't be afraid to wake the baby and feed her. In fact, I wonder what would happen if you tried that when the redness cropped up. It would be interesting to see if nursing made it go away.
