I will be returning to work next week and I have started a trial run this week of pumping and bottle feeding. LO has no problems with the bottle, but I on the other hand, am not doing so well.
I think I had a milk blister 2 weeks ago and it is still giving me problems. I posted on here previously and got some info. However, after 10 days it was still painful when I nurse or pump. I also notice my milk was backed up and causing me to have hard spots on my breast. I finally saw my OB about it and they confirm it was a blister. I have been doing the suggested heat compress and it's improved but the milk is still backed up.
This adds to my problem for my trial run since I am trying to pump only twice at work (at 11 and 4). But with all the blister problems, my breast has been hard for the past hour or so. I don't want to deviate too much from my schedule, but at the same time I don't want this engorgement to lead to mastitis/plugged ducts. What should I do??
