I think I am experiencing either engorgement or blocked ducts. My 5 week old seems to nurse fine (doesn’t seem fussy or upset after feeding and most of the breast softens), so I think she is getting milk, but when I pump to help relieve the slight pain and hardness of an area of the breast only drops of milk come out. Also, the area that is hard has turned the skin red. I tried a warm shower and that didn’t help.
1. Does this sound like engorgement or sound like blocked ducts?
2. If only drops of milk come out when I pump, what should I do to help alleviate the hardness and slight pain?
