Hello breast feeding mothers! I figured you would probably be best to give me some advice even tho technically im not breastfeeding.
Sooo had the lil lady 8 months ago. My milk dried up week 2 or 3.. Then around 3 months ago i developed a white spot on my nipple, about the size of a peppercorn. Looked like a milk bubble which later the dr confirmed and said it will go away in its own.
But it still hasnt and now its stinging and i cant lay on my tummy/boobs cause it makes it hurt.
Argh wtf boobs get your shiz together!
What can i do? Anything? Keep waiting? I want to pop the skin with maybe a sterilized needle to let it out... Is that wise? A dr visit is a pain in the butt(or nipple)
How many times can i say nipple in one thread! *red face*

I wouldn't be able to stop myself popping it with a needle... Sounds as though it needs to release some pressure!
Hope it clears up soon for you! Never heard of a milk bubble!
oh and when you say nipple, do you mean the actual nipple, or the aureola? (surrounding the nipple)

I've never had that but omg what restraint you have, it would have been popped on day one if it was me, I love to pop lol.
Maybe you have an infection under it now? I'd get it checked out as popping probably isn't the best thing.
