  • So you shaved your nipples??? That could be why....if its not bleeding like crazy you should be alright. You know like when you nick yourself shaving your legs it burns and hurts and bleeds a little then its ok. Idk thats what I would think...but why were you shaving your nipples???

  • LOL well I feel better! So my question would be - is it like blood coming out of the milk ducts (where the milk used to come out) or is it more from cracked or dried out nipples ?It sounds more like they are cracked & dry which can be extremely itchy, also thrush on the nipple is so itchy you are insane & can't help but scratch & is very common for breastfeeding (& just-stopped) moms. A anti fungal cream will help if that is it.(wont hurt even if its not so get your butt to a drug store), & try to go without a bra, even better go completely topless if possible. They will also feel full & itchy, like in need of drainage if u have just stopped feeding, ignore & it will fade away. If you are still worried in a couple of days see your DR or lactation clinic. Remember your body holds around 8 litres of blood so you won't bleed to death from your nipple... nothing to worry about tonight!
