Re: DESPARATE! nursing over 9 weeks and still getting milk b
Since the whitened area is bulging out after nursing, it sounds more like a bleb than a plugged nipple pore. IMO, the most likely explanation for repeat blebs in the same location is that baby's latch is still not perfect. And most likely this is due to the fact that 9 week old babies are still very tiny and have tiny mouths.
Try varying your baby's nursing position, and if the bleb is not breaking on its own, don't be afraid to do it yourself, using a sterile needle. My guess is that time will take care of this problem, because both of my girls caused fewer blebs as time went on and their mouths grew.
