I am new here, but not to nursing, this is my 3rd baby and i have never experienced this before! When i pump, with a double electric or a single electric, it is not emptying my right side totally, it feels like i have a clogged duct as there will be a hard spot in my breast and its so tender and sore BUT when he nurses, it feels 100% different, he emptys completely and there is no pain. its very frustrating being in pain and i work and go to school so hes in daycare from 8-5 everyday, and i do pump often, every 3 hours, sometimes closer together if im not that busy. i tried massaging and warm compress, etc. it starts right from the start of the day too b/c he nurses anywhere between 5 and 7 am but then i still have to pump b/c he only nurses one side at a time usually. then its even worse when he eats right before i pick them up b/c when i get home i have to pump again and he wont nurse til like 7 pm and its all day in pain over the weekend i dont pump so i was feeling a lot better but i tell ya what i have a new hatred for mondays! and its just giving me this all over not feeling well, my whole body is starting to ache and i feel exhausted
sorry this is so long but i have no idea what could be causing this or how to fix it and i need help please!
