Re: Lump in my breast
Yeah, plugs often co-occur with blebs. The bleb blocks the outlet for the duct, and presto: plugged duct! Is the plugged area emptying at all at this point? If not, it may be necessary for you to break the bleb which is covering the duct. This can be done using a sterile needle, and should be done by you, not a doctor. You are better equipped that anyone else to know when you have gone too far with the needle.
So, about the schedule- what would happen if the baby were hungry well in advance of that 2-3 hour mark? Would you nurse her, or try to get her to go longer without feeding? The reason I ask is that flexible routines are breastfeeding-friendly, but schedules, which tend to be more rigid, generally are not.
