I seem to have a plugged duct since the entire underside of my breast is extremely hard. Production is also down in that breast and my baby refuses to nurse from it. I tried warm compress, hot shower, electric toothbrush, massage, some nursing, pumping etc....and it won't come out. It's been 24 hrs.
I know that the best way to get it out is to nurse, nurse, nurse but it's not that easy for my baby and I.
Has anyone managed to get these out with a pump? I wouldn't want it to turn into mastitis...please let me know what has worked for you.
