I have had an issue with over produce since the first week, which isnt a bad thing because I have been donating it. It also came in handy bacause i had extra milk when i have to have surgury.
i have gone thru 3 pumps. the first one the flanges where to small and no way to get bigger ones but i stuck it out ( no money for a new one) until the motor went out. so i go t a new one which didnt empty me so i in turn started getting milk blisters and then got mastitis whith 2 weeks of using that pump. i now have the best pump ever. the Medela in style. I love it!!! However i am now having reaccuring issues with the milk blister and a clogged duct behind it. I do not know how to get the milk blister to go away and stay away. i have tried massaging, hot water and pricking it. pricking it hurts but it is affective but it bleeds, i cant do the hot water or soak at work and massageing only gets so far.
[*]question 1. does blood curdle the milk?? or should i be worries of an affection again?[*]question 2. does anyone have ideas to help keep the milk blister and clogging from coming back or limit the times it does come back?[*]questions 3. any ideas on how to do the hot water soak at work? i am currenly pumping in a public ladies bathroom. i have a curtained off space for me.[/LIST]
