I've successfully breastfed my son for 4 months now. I hope to continue breastfeeding (via pumping) when I return to work in 2 months' time.
However, I am experiencing a problem. Whenever I pump the right breast, i get quite a lot of milk (2-4 oz) and the breast seems quite soft. But about 2-3 hours later, a painful horizontal lump will gradually form just beneath the aerola. I then nurse the baby on that breast in order to clear the lump.
I am guessing that the pump is not clearing the milk properly in this breast but am not sure how to resolve it. No such problem when pumping the left breast.
Has anyone experienced this and how to resolve it? thanks
