    Default newborn with blister on lip?

    i just noticed it, my 3 week old has a clear blister on the middle of her top lip.
    i read online, and it says its perfectly normal? other sites said, its a sign she is latching on correctly is this true?

    Both of my LOs had a "sucky blister". Its not as noticeable now and the ped said it was fine.

    My LO got these on an off for the first few months. I read they were normal and never worried again.

    It never amazes me the things I never knew!

    Mine LO, now 4 weeks old, had one for his first week of feeding. I just assumed it was from nursing! It went away and he is great (my body also suffered a bit from nursing, but that healed up after about aweek, too- we went through it together!)

    Welcome and congratulations on your new arrival.

    Blister on baby's lip = breastfed baby

    Blister on mommy's nipple = bad latch

    I think one of the websites you mentioned probably had some misinformation posted on it, at least to my knowledge.

    Totally normal! Think of it like a callous. When baby is used to BFing it will disappear.

    My mom told me about the callous, as she calls it, and I was ready for it. I was so happy to see DD and DS develop it early on so I knew the latch was good! My mom was so excited to see DS with his, she thinks they are cute. She is just so happy I'm bf again.

    The nurse who taught the newborn class I went to before discharge said this is a milk blister and is completely normal in nursing babies. Eventually it will go away on it's own. ~~ Meri
