I nursed my oldest son for 13.5 mths - not once did I have a blocked duct, mastitis or any milk blisters.
I have nursed Kyle so far for 8.5 mths - and I now have a milk blister - it hurts. I noticed yesterday that nursing off my right breast was a little painful - but I thought that maybe his teeth were poking in. Then last night, I realized that my right nipple was sore - so I took a look, and there was quite a large blister protruding. OUCH.
There is absolutely no point to this post, I just needed to put it out there - that's all.
