I just weaning my DD about a week ago after nursing for 26 mos. We started food at 7 mos or so and reduced to nap and night time only about 2 or 3 mos. ago. My breasts were really flat before the real end of BF for us and I figured I would have no problem with ducts clogging, etc. And for a week I just had fuller, not hard or painful.
THEN, last night I notced tenderness and hard feeling in the top of my left and this morning a quarter shaped light red spot. Anyways I took a shower and expressed a lot out, I tried to push on that duct too and it definitely helped, now the hardness is gone, but the tenderness is still there a little.
I'm pretty sure this is being caused by a ten pound weight vest I wear to exercise....I know, tres dumb. How long should I keep expressing? I don't have a fever but I don't want to keep up a supply forever. I've read alot of conflicting advice about warm or cold compresses? I'm leaning towards warm? Anyone have advice? Thanks!
