I had been having some really intense pain while nursing, like a pinching pain that got progressively worse. Finally a white blister appeared on the tip of my nipple so after googling and reading everything I could about it, I found that I was going to have to pop it! Just the thought of it brought tears to my eyes, made me feel like I was going to pee my pants actually lol. Anyways I finally found the courage and just did it. I popped it! And to my amazement the pain was gone almost instantly! I had to express some milk, because it was thick and had formed a clot because of the blister but after a couple of nursing sessions it is feeling so much better!
I just thought Id share that in case anyone else finds themselves in a similar circumstance.

Also is anyone having pain with nursing still? Colton is 5 weeks and 2 days, and Im still having nipple pain. I suspect that he has a bad latch. Im finding it impossible to correct it.

How long did you have pain with nursing?

ouch!!

no lasting pain. some times when she first latches on if she is extra hungry, or middle of the night and we are both being lazy. but it doesn't last through the feeding.

hopefully you'll get sme relief soon!

Ow that sounds painful. If he's angry he'll latch bad and pull my nipple around like he's trying to rip it off but for the most part his latch is fine. I hope the latching goes better!

Its my right side as well! I just took a small pin and popped it. There was no pain with the popping at all, and what Ive read is that if you dont pop it, or rub it so that it pops, your milk ducts that are affected can become infected.

I got several milk blisters when nursing my other 2, they hurt like heck! I'm glad popping them doesn't hurt, it is intimidating to think of sticking a needle in your nipple

I'd suggest seeing a lactation consultant to at least rule out a bad latch. If his latch is okay, I would say it's thrush. Everytime I've had it, my only symptom was nipple pain, my DD's never had the white spots in thier mouth.

I've had several over my nursing life (TERRIBLE with Erin, and some with Patrick....always my right side, I wonder if there's something wrong with my nipple. ) and they've always ended up popping while nursing. I've only had to pop it once, and that's when my milk ducts behind it were clogged.

Ouch, that sounds awful.
Thanks for letting us know what to do in case anyone else gets the same symptoms.

Miles is 6 weeks old and nursing still hurts every time, the whole time. Ours is definitely due to bad latch. You know when you sometimes see people in their posts talk about the baby occasionally slipping down and only nursing on the nipple, causing them pain? That's the only way Miles can/will eat. It blows. Go see an LC if you can.

Ive been to see an LC several times, they think his latch looks good, lip is curled, he just likes to nipple feed as well. Hes doing ok, getting what he needs so I put up with it. Im assuming that my nipples are going to toughen up soon and adjust to his technique. Im hoping anyways!

my nipples are raw, they literally feel like a skinned knee does. But they don't hurt while nursing, just during latch on. They are still very sensitive to my shirt fabric too and i hate it when she kicks one breast while nursing on the other. She's also doing a lot of cluster nursing and nursing for long periods.

But I am still adjusting to the pump (up to 9 mins per side!) so that might be a big factor.

That's not necessarily true. I was blistered/cracked and bleeding for 6 months with Erin's latch issues. Finally I was in so much pain constantly that I realized I HATED feeding her, and she'd get into a full scream before I could screw up the courage to nurse her. Finally I switched to formula. To this day I don't know why I let myself go 6 months. My nipple is actually scarred.
