My daughter was born on the 17th and up until yesterday breastfeeding was going perfectly, my milk came in fast,she latched on good and I was comfortable, then she started wanting to eat like every 20 minutes and I started to get blisters on my nipples, as far as I can tell nothing has changed as far as my posistioning or her latch,just the frequency of feedings, anyways I have just fed through the pain,but this morning after a very sleepless night I burped her and then went to change her and she had bloody spit up on her sleeper, which normally one would freak out but I know it wasn't from her it's from me, I've dealt with this all before with my son, I had a very traumatic experience bf'ing him and now I'm horrified it's all happening again, I do have a nipple shield that I am begginning to use but I almost flinch bringing her up to the breast just having flashbacks from before, I do not want to end up with mastitis again,which I've heard it happens easier if you've had it before, the lansinoh cream is worthless because of how often she's feeding, has anyone else had blisters like this and bled, and had your baby spit up blood(with milk of course)I am just so upset I really wanted this to work,I was so happy that everything was going so well
