I have recently tried to reduce the amount that I'm expressing so I can stop pumping. However, in doing so, I began to have blocked milk ducts in the left breast. Now my left breast is so sore and tender and began having blood come from that same breast, was very minimal at first but now this last time it was 3 oz before my milk didn't have any blood in it that I could see...what to do?
I noticed blood from my nipple about two weeks before giving birth, just a small amount-it was red on colour not pink or orange, I was very worried.
When my son was born the lactation nurse found out what it was and said it was fine to continue breastfeeding, it was about 3 days before it went away. We did not notice any blood in little ones stools.
