I was unable to nurse my KD from my breasts and has been using the pump to express milk. I started pumping 10x/day in the beginning to build my supply but now am in the process of weaning.
I am getting plugged ducts almost every week and the plug would last ~3 days before resolving. I am now at 5 pumping sessions per day and would pump for 30-45 minutes per session. This stresses me out a lot! I would really like to spend more time with my KD rather than with the pump .
I was wondering if it is necessary for me to make sure the plug resolves even though I am pump weaning or would the body eventually reabsorb the milk anyway.
Would leaving milk stasis in my case cause infection even if my KD does not nurse directly off my breasts?
