Just when I thought things couldnt be better with BF, I find clogged ducts developing this afternoon. My LO is 2 months old and feeds about every hour during the day. My breasts stay pretty soft. I have had this nasty crack on my left breast since the beginning (well, a few days after DD was born). It is on the right side of the left nipple. In the last few weeks it has slowly started getting smaller and scaring over!!! It is almost completely healed. When I pump I would notice milk coming out of the center of the crack. This afternoon, all of a sudden, I noticed a pain in the right side of my left breast (the same side as the crack). Even though DD had just fed off of it an hour ago, I decided to pump (she was taking a nap). Well, when I pumped, no milk came from the site of my crack.
Did I get clogged ducts on the right side of my left breast because the pore scared over? And what do I do about it? I've already had mastitis on the right breast. It was the worst!!!
