    Default blisters all over lips

    Okay, so IME my nurslings have gotten a single blister on their top lip. But, Katie has them all over her top and bottom lips. I'm wondering if it's from her bad latch (my left nipple can attest to her latching issues ) or if it still falls in the category of normal bfing blister. Any thoughts?

    The Seven Standards of ecological breastfeeding: (1) exclusive breasfeeding for the first 6 months (2) pacify baby at your breast (3) don't use bottles and pacifiers (4) co-sleep for night feedings (5) take a nursing nap (6) nurse frequently day and night; avoiding schedules (7) avoid practices that restrict nursing or separates you from your baby. The average return of menstruation for ecological breastfeeding mothers is between 14 and 15 months.

    They're small, not really swollen at all, and they don't seem to bother her. Color wise they seem to blend in with her lips as opposed to being white. They do peel off but then seem to come back.
