My supply changed suddenly after I got a plugged duct. I have always been fairly consistent in my pumping. I usually get about 2 oz from my left breast and between 3-4 oz from my right breast. My daughter is almost 11 months old. Earlier this week, I got a plugged duct in my right breast. Thankfully, my DD was able to suck it out in a couple of nursing sessions, so I didn't think much of it. However, after that, I can't seem to get even 2 oz out of my right breast whenever I pump!
I'm very concerned because it's been about a week and it doesn't look like it's getting much better. I had a very small stash in the fridge and we're going through it quickly because my baby drinks about 5-6 oz at a feeding and I'm pumping closer to 3 oz.
Can a plugged duct lead to lower supply? Is this going to get better if I just keep pumping and nursing? Or do I need to do something more active to get my supply back up? Any advice would be appreciated!
