Has anyone else dealt with this? I seem to get at least one or more per week. I've gotten better at noticing them right away and working them out, but if I don't it can take a couple days to get things back to normal again. I've gotten more vigilant about my fluid intake - I drink 2 liters of water per day. My DD is 9 months old. She bf's on demand when home with me even at night where she still wakes several times. I work part time 20 hours per week and pump every 2.5 to 3 hours while away from her (which works out to 3 times per day). One thought I had is that my pump schedule and her intake when home with me are not in synch, so perhaps my body is confused about how much milk to make and when. Sometimes I get the plugged duct at work, sometimes it happens at home, so I can't seem to blame one environment or another. I've gotten them even when going braless for awhile. Its never the same breast or the same location. I've thought perhaps teething might be to blame. She's been working on her uppers since Christmas - one finally cut today (yay!) Have other moms dealth with this? And any ideas of what might be the cause or possible solutions?
