I'm a new mom & have 6 wk old. Since the 1st wk we came home, I've had stringy white stuff in my milk when I pump. Occassionally hanging from my nipple after I pump/nurse. This stuff clogs the bottle nipple when I bottle feed. I have to strain my milk everytime I pump.
I get a couple of ounces per breast and the stringy stuff is in both breasts. I'm pumping ever 2-3 hrs.
I though it was clogged ducts, but maybe I'm wrong? I've tried warm compresses15 mins before pumping, long warm showers while massaging breasts, massaging breasts while pumping...Nothing has worked. I'm tired of straining my milk.
Please Help. I'm going back to work in 2 weeks and would like to get this resolved before then.
