Re: Clogged duct
Things to try:
- Vary your nursing and pumping positions.
- Try dangle nursing- the gravity assist may help baby drain the breast.
- Warm soaks and showers, especially on the nipple.
- Inspect the surface of the nipple for blebs/blisters. If you find one, you may want to break it with a sterile needle.
Stay alert for mastitis symptoms, including red streaks/patches on the skin of the breast, flu-like feelings (aches, pains, chills, malaise), and fever. If these pop up, see your doctor; antibiotics may be in order.
