    Default Lumpy breast

    My left breast feels hard, lumpy, and engorged. But when I pump, not much milk comes out. It is really uncomfortable. What gives? I have tried massaging but that doesn't seem to help. Is it possible that my milk is "stuck" inside? Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    Can you tell us a bit more about your situation? How old is your baby? Are you nursing in addition to pumping, or exclusively pumping?

    Here's some info about engorgement:

    And some info about plugged ducts:
