The problem is I have a big blister on my left nipple and now there is dried blood aswell. he has all his teeth and besides not eating there is nothing wrong.

    Personally I would refuse the breast until he eats... not meaning that to sound cruel but I mean.. Feed him when he wakes if thats what you normally do.. Then offer breakfast ect..

    At 15 months you can't reason but you can be firm.. My son fed till 21 months and some days he just fed off me but he would also eat

    As for the blister he might be sucking to hard so you may have to un attach him and reattach..

    Can't quite remember but i think they get lazy when feeding which causes poor attachment..

    I hope you can get it sorted out soon
