My right breast has plugged up for the second time, and the clog seems to be over a slightly larger and different area this time.
I have read the other posts about using moist heat and massage to unclog it, but have tried without success. I don't even know if I am doing it the "right" way. The last time, in my desperation, I had my husband to suck at my breast hoping to unclog it!!!
I have tried to offer that breast to the baby, but he fusses and cries -- probably because he is hardly getting anything out of that breast. So, I had to offer him the left breast -- to satisfy his hunger, and also for fear the other breast would get clogged too!! Is that the right thing to do??
I am so discouraged because the "pain" causing issues never seem to end. (I was just beginning to be happy thinking that things are starting to look up a little!) I was having nipple pain in my 4th week of breastfeeding, and I suspected thrush. But I saw a Ped, and she didn't say anything helpful. My baby doesn't seem to have the white spots in his mouth, only some residual whiteness on his tongue after each feed. But he feeds so often (every half-hour, hour or 2) that it's not possible to know if the residue was from the last feed or is there always??
