I have a blister on my nipple. It's definitely a friction blister not a milk bleb - got it from trying to feed lying down and not doing it right.

It's soooo painful and wondered if anyone can help? If I pop it, is that going to unleash all manner of badness? i'm just carrying on feeding at the mo but it huuuuuuurts

Ouch, no idea what to adivse you but if it were me, I would maybe feed on the other side for a day or so till its not so sore. I have no idea if that is the right advice though, but would make sence to do for now.

Thanks Divvy. Will that affect supply do you think?

I dont know, but as its only for a day or so till you are better would think not. Thing is you cant feed on the sore one can you? I would think mother nature works better than that. I dont really know though.

plantsitter, how old is your baby?

If you suspend feeding on the sore side you will be uncomfortable if you don't express.

Call one of the helplines for suggestions of other posits which might not be as painful for you.

Hi Tiktok thanks for replying. She's 4 months. We had probs at the start but bf was going ok... until I was so lazy I didn't want to sit up to feed and latched her on rubbishly lying down.

How is the sore boobie today?

Thanks for asking! Was planning to update just in case someone searched for 'nipple blister' in the future. I did feed a bit less on that boob 'cos it seems less painful when she feeds from an engorged boob. then I put sudocreme on it when dd went to bed, and washed it off and put lasinoh on when I went to bed. It is healing and feels loads better today. Phew!
