Sorry, I know this is an oft-repeated subject around here, but I have a question about this problem again! I developed a plugged duct today that I noticed while pumping. I didn't really have anything I could use to help clear it other than the pump at school, but when I got home I nursed the baby a lot then I jumped in the shower.
I massaged the area a ton and really got it flowing again. Some small, hard white bits came out now and then so I really felt like I made a lot of progress. Afterward I pumped some more just to try and get it really empty, then I did some other things for a while. I noticed that it was hard again just recently! So I don't understand, did I NOT get it unclogged even though my breast felt super soft after all the pumping and massaging? Anyone have any advice other than the usual techniques? I feel like I can never get this duct(s) completely unplugged and it just keeps flaring up over and over.
