I think I may have a plugged duct. I've been bfing for the past 7 1/2 months and I woke up last night with a hard area in my breast. It extends from close to my body and goes to my nipple. It feels like a hard tube shape under my skin and it hurts. At the tip is like a little bubble....that looks like it fills with milk when I massage my breast. Is this a blocked duct?
I've been nursing my lo on that side more often...and I put a hot pack on that breast....and I've tried massaging it out in the shower. Any other suggestions? How long does it usually take for this to work itself out?
Thanks for any info
