Blood blisters on Nips...

Hello ladies,
I'm having some problems with blood blisters on my nips. I've nursed before and she appears to have everything in there...nip and aereola...could there be another problem?

Right now , i'm nursing past the pain, but she in only 24 hours old and my milk isn't in yet...so she wants to nurse frequently..I'm ok with that..except the pain.

My dh went to get me some nipple guards..i'm hoping those help.

Any advice?

I had those mama! You've gotta get it corrected or else the next few weeks will be painful. (well it was for me)
I think its a shallow latch. if you lo was on deep enough, he wouldnt be sucking on your nips at all. it'd be all areola. just think of how big your los mouth is when they cry. it needs to be about that big to get a good latch. dont worry if it takes a while for them to open they're mouth wide... they're still learning too!

I had that too, several times. The nipple shield worked great. It allowed me to heal and allowed her to properly get the milk out. It's frightening when your baby pulls away and her lips are covered with blood. but it's just from them improperly latching on.

Thanks ladies...I don't want anything to stop the nursing...I hate bottles.
