Blister on Baby's Lip?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My baby has a blister on her lip. I think it's from bfing. Anyone had this happen to their baby? Is the cause a bad latch?

My DD had the same for the first few weeks of nursing. It would flake off and come back. It never seemed to bother her. I read that it is normal. Bottle fed babies can get it too I think. I guess it stopped happening to her around 6 weeks or so.

My SIL had this with all 3 of her bf girls and I had it with my 2 dd as well. As the last poster mentioned, it never seemed to bother them and it went away within a few weeks.

My two had it as well, I guess their lips have to adjust like our nipples have to adjust :LOL

i've always heard them called nursing blisters, and they're prefectly normal. my dd had them come and go for two or three months.

Mine also had it for the first few weeks. I think just like our nipples, their little lips are getting used to it also

DD had this on the middle of her upper lip, came and went for the first couple of months. I'd wondered if it was a latch issue too, but it didn't seem to be.
