Re: Recurring problems with right breast
Nursing blisters are like little callouses that seal off a pore on the surface of the nipple, blocking the duct(s) that drain through the pore. They often form in the same place over and over- not necessarily due to a "bad" latch, but due to a minor quirk of how a baby nurses. For example, they often crop up when a baby is teething and is soothing sore gums on mom. Or when mom puts up with a sloppy, sleepy latch for a while.
Try varying your kids' nursing positions, and don't put up with a marginal latch from either one of them. If a nursing blister forms, and you're getting a plugged duct behind it, then take the usual self-care measures- warm soaks, massage, gentle scrubbing of the nipple surface with a washcloth. And if the blister is persistent don't be afraid to break it with a sterile needle.
You're nursing 2 kids so you have 2 possible culprits for the blisters. If I had to bet, I'd say it's your 8 month old adjusting her latch due to teething. But it could also be your older nursling fooling around.
