Thread: Blocked ducts

  1. #1

    Default Blocked ducts

    My son is 5 months old now and the last couple months I've had quite a few blocked ducts and mastitis once. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to prevent this from continuing to happen? I am also a runner and am wondering if this is having something to do with them blocking all the time. Please help!

    My first thought is your bra. A poor-fitting bra can contribute to blocked ducts. Underwire bras are particularly notorious, though compression-style bras (like many athletic bras) can be at fault, too.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    My local Le Leche leader suggested lecithin when I had multiple plugged ducts. I've also been told not to wear tight bras for exercising, but lecithin has also made a big difference!
