  • Call the hospital and the Pedi and ask them. I didn't get to breastfeed, so I'm not sure. Good luck!

  • its okay. Im sure it is scary but just do not be concerned. You are doing the very best for your baby and for your body. Here is something I found about it. http://www.loveyourbaby.com/blood-in-breast-milk.html
    Call a lactation specialist if you need some more support. :) congratulations on your new baby.

  • Are you sure that your nipples aren't cracked and might be bleeding?
