If it is hurting you can experiment with different nursing positions, picturing your breast as a clock face, and having you baby lay all different ways to put that sucking pressure on different parts of your breast to see if that helps.

If it feels harder, like a bleb, you can tape a cottom ball soaked in olive oil on it to see if it softens and releases the contents.
It's hard...will anything besides olive oil work? I don't have any in the house at the moment and would like to get this taken care of!
