    Question Sore nipple and a blister?

    My left nipple has been really sore today. I never really looked to see why until I took my shower. There is a small blister, scab, something. Looks like dd2 might have bit me or her tooth rested there I do not know. I just know my nipple and that one spot hurts. I never had any breast issue until now.

    My question is since there is no blood should I let her continue to nurse on the left side or give it a breather for a few feedings?

    sometimes that blister or sore can start to bleed when baby is feeding. i always preferred to skip a time or two on that breast and let a little expressed breastmilk heal the sore nipple. by then, at least mine did, the nipple was back to normal...

    Even if there was blood, you would still be fine using that side. Bloody milk will not hurt your baby.

    Hope you feel better soon!
