I'm a first time mom as well! My son is 6 weeks and has the same thing going on. It was more noticeable in the first few weeks and has slowly started to disappear. He had an especially large blister on the pad at the top of the lips and every couple of days it would peel off. I worried that he was latching wrong or I was doing something to cause it, but everything I read said that it was very common and that it would go away on it's own. His lips still do look white and blistery after eating, but the large blister has stopped peeling and has disappeared.

Hope this helps you!

from what i have learned they are nursing blisters .. its almost like toughing the lips up if that makes sense .. my ds is 3 months old and he still gets them when he goes through growth spurts and hes nursing more ..

i asked in here and also at my lo's last appt .. i was kinda freaked out .. i knew they got them after birth for a few weeks .. but i was shocked to know they could get them as they got older ! but it does make sense ..

My 18 month old still gets them when he goes back to nursing like crazy if he is sick or something.

Yep. They are called milk blisters and are totally normal.

My son had those too. I put lanolin on them (my nipple cream). I don't know if it helped, but it made me feel like I was doing something for them. They go away and don't hurt them.
