    Default Blood..is it ok?

    So I was pumping this morning and after all was said and done I noticed blood on my nipple, the breast shield, and the milk was tinted pink. I dumped it. Is it ok for LO to drink this???

    I had some nipple bleeding when my lo was first born and she was learning to latch correctly. I read that it is okay and will not hurt the baby.

    It is ok for baby to drink the milk. See this link for a little more info
    What's making my milk that strange color?

    Are your nipples cracked and bleeding at other times? Sometimes the wrong sized flange can cause nipple or breast damage.

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.
