I posted a thread the other day about a plugged duct (or two or three) that I'm dealing with in my left breast. I've been nursing LO a lot on that side, and it hurt a little bit and today when I got undressed for my shower I found out why -- bruising under my nipple!! He clamped on badly the other day (he's 10 weeks old and has enough neck strength he'll sometimes pull himself off into the air, then fall down and clamp on again, but unfortunately this time he clamped on very painfully), so I think the bruising was caused by that. It just stinks that it's on the same side that I have to nurse on so frequently right now because of the clogged duct.
I'm going to try to change positions so he doesn't hit the bruising as much, but it'll be tough. My question is -- is there any risk of trauma or further damage by continuing to nurse while there's bruising?
