Re: daily plugged duct!!! what gives?
Things to try:
- Different size of shields, even if your shields used to fit perfectly. Shield size can differ between breasts and can change over time.
- Combine massage and moist heat with pumping to help clear the plugs.
- Try hand expression.
- Often plugs are caused by pressure from an underwire, or even something as simple/weird as where your seat-belt falls or which side of your body you carry your bag on. So if you can change those variables, you might see good results.
- Try varying your baby's nursing position, so that his/her mouth falls in different places when he/she nurses.
