DD, 9 months, has been nursing every couple of hours lately, including overnight. It feels like her latch has become more aggressive (only word I could think of), and she's hanging on comfort nursing for up to 10 minutes after she's done actively nursing. I'm sure it's related to her getting her first upper teeth (I can see bumps up there), and also probably a growth spurt.
Well, yesterday I was examining my nipple since it was getting painful, and there was a small blister on it. It's been getting bigger and bigger with each feeding and now it's quite large, and very painful when she nurses. I don't think it's a milk bleb because it isn't white, but I've never had one so I'm not sure.
Oh and I can't get any relief by switching sides because she won't nurse off the other side and it isn't producing more than a few drops anymore.
Anyone know what this is and how to help it along?
