Purple buise like mark???

DD is 3+ months old and for at least a month I have had a small purple mark on the side of both nips about the size of a biggish freckle - it doesn't hurt really it just looks strange. Any ideas about what this is?

I've had that too, it didn't hurt so I assumed it was a vein or something similar, I wouldn't worry about it though.

sometimes very early on marks like you describe that are in the same location on both breasts and appear after a nursing session can be a sign of tongue tie leading to a poor latch. however given the age of your LO and that you would have had some other indication right now if she is not latching properly or getting enough, i wouldn't worry about it.

i have it too - on both - it's on the outside of each nipple (well, next to, but on the outside, not the cleavage side if that makes sense). I've always had the color difference there, but now that i'm nursing it is raised up...like a mole or something. no idea what it is, but I'm sure it's normal since my dermatologist didn't blink at them during my last check up.

I had blood blisters on both my nipples the first week of bf because of a bad latch. But your lo is probably too old for that now, especially at 3 mo.
