    Exclamation what's wrong with my left breast? HELP!

    it's saturday morning, and since yesterday I've noticing my left breast getting harder and harder, even after breastfeeding, it's not the hole breast, just the side, but it really hurts, specially the nipple.
    what are the symptons for clogged ducts?
    does any of you have any idea??
    thanks ladies!

    This sounds like a clogged duct to me. Hopefully you'll find this website helpful.

    That sounds like a good idea to me. You'll want to pump or nurse as often as you can to get the duct unclogged.

    You might also check the tip of your nipple for a white spot. A bleb can cause the duct behind it to get clogged.
