Nipple blanching (turning white) after a feeding occurs when the blood flow to the nipple is limited or cut off. Blanching is most often related to latch problems. Nipple blanching is often, but not always, associated with pain. Because women may describe shooting, burning breast/nipple pain, this can be mistakenly diagnosed as thrush.
Nipple blanching is a term used to describe painful, white nipples. Blanching can be the result of a vasospasm, when the blood vessels constrict and spasm, 1 or from any other situation that temporarily stops the blood from flowing to the nipples. When this happens, the nipples turn pale or white, and there may be a painful, burning sensation.
You might be experiencing nipple blanching or nipple vasospasm, two conditions that can affect nursing moms and may have you wanting to throw the towel in on breastfeeding entirely. The good news: A few fixes can usually ease symptoms so you and baby can return to breastfeeding bliss. What is nipple blanching?
Vasospasm is a constriction of the blood vessels in the nipple that causes the nipple to blanch, or turn white. Compression of the nipple is a common cause, either due to shallow breastfeeding or the baby compressing the nipple to slow fast milk flow.

Nipple blanching and vasospasm are restricted blood flow in the nipple that can lead to intense breastfeeding pain. Nipple blanching typically happens during a feed due to compression from a bad latch, and nursing mom might feel sharp pain and notice her nipple has turned white after feeding. The name may sound rather unappealing but nipple blanching is actually quite common in breastfeeding mothers. Nipple blanching occurs when there is a temporary lack of blood flow to that area of the breast and as a result they appear white in colour.
Much like when the blood drains from your face if you are in shock!Nipple blanching If your nipple turns white after feeding, it suggests that the blood flow is being reduced or cut off to your nipple. If despite this blanching, your nipple then returns reasonably quickly back to its normal color after feeding, and you don’t experience any pain.
Symptoms of vasospasm in breastfeeding: Burning, stabbing, throbbing, and/or “pins and needles” pain in the nipple and/or in the breast once the baby is off the breast. Pain may also occur when stepping out of a warm shower or when going outside on a cold day. There may or may not be pain during breastfeeding. Vasospasm happens when blood vessels tighten and go into spasm, so that blood does not flow normally.
Mothers with vasospasm of the nipple feel 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.There are two main causes of nipple vasospasm.It can be a response of the nipple.
