blue ( purple ) nipple and pain ?!


Hi girls, I am breastfeeding my 8 month old and for the last 2 weeks I have been having pain on my right breast while breast feeding and also I noticed the nipple ( just the part where the milk comes from ) is blue but not like little bit blue , its like dark blue . I have no idea why is that . Does anyone have this experience ?

Does it stay blue or change back to normal? If it stays its most likely damaged tissue from a bad latch or a bite. If it changes color it could be reynaud phenomenon.

it stays blue . It doesnt hurt , only while breast feeding . I have read some article that after few months of BF mom and the baby stop paying attention during breast feeding if the latching is proper and that can make the nipple sore . I will try to pay more atantion and will see what is going to happen . Thanks for your replies

Mine was probably bad latch too because I started to pay more attention and it got better . It is still little bit blue but it doesnt hurt anymore

Just make sure your baby has mouth wide open . You can help little bit , I always help the top lip and it makes my baby to open his mouth wider . It also took me probably 2 month before it stopped hurt . After that I had no problem for 6 month untill now . But its getting better
