    Default Left side very sore...

    Hey everyone... my left breast feels very tender, like it's bruised... Is something bad happening? It hurts mostly when pressure is applied but not when I'm feeding. Any ideas? TIA

    How long have you been breastfeeding?
    Sometimes when my DD sucks really hard, I will have some pain just under the nipple.
    Hopefully someone else will have some advice.
    Or if you could explain the pain in more detail, maybe that would help.

    It's a deeper pain, up higher on my breast. I just spent some time in the bed nursing and using a hot washcloth and it seems to have helped, it might have been a plugged duct? I just kept massaging the area with a warm washcloth and feeding Asher until he wouldn't take anymore. I think that was it. Thanks!
