sure you are not doing anything wrong
My dd had a milk blister on her lip from vigrourous sucking!

But check with the HV just in case

thank you for reassurance. think the bruise is where she might have sucked so hard on my finger it has got trapped over and over between finger and gum. she also had a sucking blister, when does it go?
