bruised areola

The areola right below my nipple is bruised.

DS is only 5wks old....so no teeth....I cant recall being clamped down on....no wonder it hurts!

What would cause this? I dont have it on the other side???

Re: bruised areola

Is she latched on improperly? Maybe she's not opening her mouth enough and actually giving you a hickey??

That happened to me recently - dd is 8 weeks old. It hurt like crazy though when she started sucking, so I knew her latch was off.

Most likely DC latched on wrong briefly and left a hickey. With the hoover action they have at that size it doesn't take long to leave a painful bruise. BTW, just gotta say my first thought was OUCHIE!! when I saw the thread title.

Re: bruised areola

I vote improper latch and a hickey. Can you visit with a LLL leader or a LC just to double check the latch?

GL mama, my nips hurt out of sympathy.
