Nursing Blisters

Whether you breastfeed or bottle-feed, your baby can get nursing blisters. Nursing blisters, sometimes called 'sucking blisters,' are caused by vigorous sucking. They appear as a blister on the center of the top lip. It may be swollen and his lips will be chapped.

Set your fears to rest. Nursing blisters cause your newborn no pain and will disappear within a few weeks.
