In brief: Yes

Some babies are even born with a "sucking blister" from sucking on their own hands in utero.
It is common and normal for breastfed babies to get this same type of sucking blister from feeding. It is not dangerous and you don't need any medicine or creams to treat it.

In brief: Yes, No Worries

A sucking blister or callous, is very common in both breast and bottle fed babies.
It is not serious or painful, and no treatment is necessary. Don't pick off the callous as that might hurt.
