Nipple vasospasm happens when blood vessels constrict and go into spasm; leading to abnormal blood flow. Mothers with nipple vasospasm experience sharp pain, burning or stinging in the nipple. It is usually accompanied by sudden whitening of the nipple, followed by a colour change from red to blue.
If you are suffering from these symptoms above I firstly want to say POOR YOU! Plus I’d suggest you see a breastfeeding specialist about it. There are several treatment methods I use and one is supplementation.
While there have not been studies done to reveal the effectiveness of this, there is strong anecdotal evidence to show Vitamin B6 plus Calcium and Magnesium can definitely help.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine hydrochloride 240mg equiv. pyridoxine 197mg)
