I have a 6 week old DS (first baby) and breast feeding has so far gone remarkably well.
This morning I awoke to a little boy who slept through his second feeding of the night (YAY) but left me with very full breasts.
I have a clogged duct on my right side and have been applying warm compresses, feeding more often and done some gentle massage of the area.
This happened on the left side when he was two weeks and these solutions worked like a charm.
This clog seems to be a bit more stubborn-
how long does it usually take for a clogged duct to clear up?
when would you call a doctor and which doctor do you call- ob or gp?
I ask because we are flying on Saturday and I really don't want this to escelate into aninfection and have to deal with that while traveling.
Thanks for helping out a new mom!
