    Default Milk Blister

    Anyone deal with one before? I'm so over this already and this morning I read that it could take over a month to heal! eek! Any BTDT advice? Aiden only nurses 2-4 times a day normally so its not like it's getting a ton of boob time. As much as I love BFing I'm not really wanting to turn him back to his boobaholic days. I'm enjoying the fact that he's slowly weaning himself.

    Gotta love kellymom.

    "A milk blister, or blocked nipple pore, is also called a bleb or nipple blister, or simply "milk under the skin." It occurs when a tiny bit of skin overgrows a milk duct opening and milk backs up behind it. A milk blister usually shows up as a painful white, clear or yellow dot on the nipple or areola, and the pain tends to be focused at that spot and just behind it. If you compress the breast so that milk is forced down the ducts, the blister will typically bulge outward. Milk blisters can be persistent and very painful during feeding, and may remain for several days or weeks and then spontaneously heal when the skin peels away from the affected area."

    I had this with DD1. NO FUN!!! I just nursed her in a different position and it healed pretty quickly. I will say that she was a newborn when this happened so it was easy to change positions. Hope it resolves soon!

    Thanks for replying! I'm wondering if DS only nursing 2-4 times a day is what is making it longer to heal. It's still there. It's definitely tender and definitely hurts when he nurses on that side. I know I don't have an infection or anything, so I'm trying to remain patient. Trying.
