I have 2 day old infant (2nd child) and I have extremely sore cracked nipples. I pumped milk and right breast milk had blood clots. Help please.?

Don't worry! some bleeding from the nipples is normal and if the baby gets a little of your blood in the milk it is ok. If there is a lot, you could dump it if it makes you feel better. Use a gentle barrier ointment like lanolin on your nipples after nursing. Make sure to vary nursing positions and alternate starting breast. See a lactation consult if things don't improve in a few days. . Read more...
