The Breasts Bleed When Breastfeeding?
Hello, my name is, virtual r nI want to ask, about breasts. R nI am breastfeeding my child, I am 22 months old ,, the left breast is rarely drunk, and suddenly the blood comes out but it doesn’t hurt ,, milk and blood, , separated ,, (the nipple outside the milk in the middle of the outflow of blood), why is that, thank you
Good morning Maya, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bleeding nipples can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Swelling of blood vessels
Infant attachment error while breastfeeding
Incorrect use of a breast pump
Yeast infection in the baby's mouth
Benign growths on the nipples
Our advice, further direct examination is needed to avoid misunderstanding about your condition. So you should check your complaint with your gynecologist to see which of the possibilities above best represents your condition. Your doctor will focus on looking at the bleeding area to detect any sores that could lead to bleeding or an infection.
Meanwhile, our advice is that you don't have to worry about the bleeding and wipe it with a damp cloth every time the blood comes out. In addition, it is recommended that both breasts have the same frequency of breastfeeding for your baby so that milk does not accumulate in one breast and cause disease. You can also read the following articles on latching on to a baby while breastfeeding to make sure you are breastfeeding properly so far. So, hopefully it answers your question.
