Has anyone else had a problem with their nipples bleeding? My little guy was nursing earlier this afternoon and I noticed that my nipple was bleeding but he continued to nurse. I noticed afterward that there was what looked to be a blood blister on that nipple. Just a few minutes ago, he spit up and unsurprisingly there was some blood in it. I'm not concerned about the blood in the spit up, I know where it came from. What I need advice on is the bleeding nipple. Should I refrain from nursing on that side and only pump until it heals or is it okay to continue nursing? I should add that for the past week or so, I have been having intense pain, almost constantly, in both nipples. I've checked and rechecked his latch and I feel confident that it's not what is causing the pain. I'm not entirely sure what it is. Any advice anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
