My LO is 2 weeks and 2 days old. My milk came in on day 2-3 and I have been engorged ever since. The engorgement goes away after she feeds, but is back in both breasts on the next feed. She only feeds on one side per feeding since her feedings only last 5 to 10 minutes. I also think I may have an OALD, but I am not sure if my milk sprays as soon as I take my breast pad out due to the engorgement or not. When will my milk regulate??? The engorgement seems worse at night, and she still feeds every 2 to 3 hours which is the same for day time.
Last night I wore a nursing tank top to bed and woke up for the 6am feeding with a very sore right breast. I realized the bra in the tank top was putting a lot of pressure on the bottom of my right breast. I took it off and changed to a looser fitting bra right away. Now the whole bottom half of this breast is quite sore and feels lumpy, even after she nurses. I have done moist heat massage, dry heat, frequent feedings. Can this be a plugged duct? I wasn't sure b/c it doesn't feel like one spot on my breast. I haven't noticed any redness either. Is there anything else I should do? How long before I notice any relief?
