Baby is now 11 months, and I've now had yeast infection 2-3 times, Mastitis 2 times, and clogged ducts...probably 10! Always clogged on the right side. This one that I currently have has probably been the worst and I got mastitis from it too. I'm now on day 5 and it still hasn't gone away! Pumping about every 3 hours, taking lecithin, have done phytolaca decandra, and have tried many other home remedies: potatoes, cabbage leaf, ginger/lemon tea, hot packs, massage, I try to do long pumpings (due to so many problems in the early months, we've been exclusively pumping, no bf-ing) so I get all the milk out. I've heard about getting ultrasound done on it. Also read that using the back of an electric toothbrush can help as well, so I've of course started trying that out. How can I better prevent these constant occurances and make them go away? I feel as if this one is never going to leave. Will I want to do things that would drop my milk supply right now so I can get rid of this clogged duct, and prevent it from getting more backed up? Planning to be done pumping when he turns 1, in a month. I have no idea how I'm going to be able to wean myself off, when I get clogged milk ducts and mastitis even when I'm doing full pumpings where I get everything out. Any recommendations, other than very slowly spreading the pumping times apart and shortening the time I pump? I'm starting to think I will have to do something drastic like fasting so I literally kill off my milk supply!
