I've been breastfeeding my son for a little over 12 months now. I night weaned him about 4 months ago, but he still nurses about 5 or 6 times during the day. I could never feel my letdown until about 2 months ago. Since then it's felt a little uncomfortable, (sometimes pretty uncomfortable) when I have a letdown. But only on the right side, up in my breast close to my armpit.
In the past week or so I've been feeling a little discomfort in that area even when I'm not letting down. And now it's a little bit on both sides (although still more on the right). Has anyone else experienced this? I initially thought it might be a clogged duct, but there's never been any hardness or pain when palpated. And now that I'm feeling it a little bit on the left side too, I'm pretty sure it's not because of a clogged duct. It's not the worst thing in the world but I'm just curious what's going on.
