Re: Clogged Milk Duct for 24 hours or more
Resting as much as possible with a plugged duct will help to avoid mastitis. One thing that has worked well for me is massaging while hand expressing at the end of a hot shower. Depending where the plug is, hand expressing can allow you to massage spots that you wouldn't be able to while pumping. Hand expressing is a learned skill, but can be worth the time learning how to do it. http://www.lactationinstitute.org/MANUALEX.html
