I have a cracked nipple. I can't breastfeed right now (we're working on latching on) so I'm pumping every 2 hours to feed her. When I pump from the nipple that's cracked, I feel like I get a lot of blood in with it. I know that some blood is okay, but how much is too much? The last time I pumped I was pumping almost pure blood for almost half an ounce. I just threw it away once the milk let down, and even then the milk was fairly pink with blood and tiny (maybe 1/6 the size of your pinky nail) thin clots. Ever since this, she seems to be having much more gas, too, but she's also eating a lot more so it might be unrelated. I also try to dilute the bloody side with the non bloody side so it's less concentrated, but how much blood is too much in her breast milk?
