LO Swollen Lips After BF

Hi there! We are going on the second day of EBF my LO & I notice that both her top & bottom lips are swollen after each nursing session. The swelling seems to go down between sessions, but I haven't heard anything about this? Is it normal? I know we have some latch issues due to her tongue & lip ties (had them revised this week) but it really only hurts for the first 30 seconds that she latches on.

  • It's normal. The sucking motion makes the blood flow to lips higher which makes them swell or get puffy. Same goes for kissing. Next time you make out with your SO take a look at your lips :)
