Need some quick help. It's my last day of maternity leave and I seem to be on the verge of a plugged duct. Up till 2 days ago i pumped one time one side per day (alternating each day) and BF all day,eve, night as needed. our new nanny and i have been working the transition together and she has given bottles between 10:30 and 3:30 with me BF the rest of the time. I'll always nurse DD morning, eve, night, weekend - anytime when not working, and was trying to ease in to this by having the Nanny do some day feelings to ensure success w/DD, which she's had. I think this happened because A) I'm used to nursing a lot more, like all the time and B) I waited way too long to pump yesterday.
I want to prevent this from escalating so I've just applied a warm compress and pumped. Not much came out and that side has always been the weaker producer. I don't know how fast this can resolve but it's definitely sore and very firm on the underside of the breast so I'm doing more heat now. No redness or other symptoms yet. Is there anything else I should do? This is going to be much harder to address at the office tomorrow but ill bring a heating pad with me in addition to my pump.
