LO is now 8 1/2 mths old and has been doing wierd things, like not nursing very often and when he does, he takes a sip and then yanks off, looks for daddy or the dog, or anything else, talks to it, and then yanks back on. When he does nurse now, it's not for long, (but he doesn't act hungry in between.) Can the short nursing sessions, yanking, infrequency,etc, cause a clogged duct?
I had one months ago, and it got to the point I was constantly in tears because of the pain. This one is starting to hurt pretty badly, and I can feel the lump. Is there anything I can do to catch it before it gets really bad?
