    Default Bleeding nipples

    I have bursted blood vessels on my nipples, and think they're from my pump (medela pump in style) since they healed over the weekend and came back today.
    Any idea why this started so suddenly and what I might be able to do to prevent it?

    It could be an effect of the settings on the pump - too much suction, or too fast for you. This could also happen if the flanges don't fit you right, and are too big or too small for you.
