    Question Is this slight breast pain normal?

    Sometimes it feels like the ducts hurt, in the upper region of my boobs, and in the armpit area. They are not clogged, or not enough to make it REALLY painful. No redness, no fever, no nothing beyond some mild throbbing pain. I just make sure to try to nurse on the side the pain is on first all the time, in case it is a clogged duct.

    Possible that I have clogged or slightly clogged ducts, but just not enough to cause any problems? Anything to worry about, if it happens a lot but no major problems?

    I dunno if its normal or not but I have the same thing... I am nursing my 18 m old and often I have breast pain . Especially in the am.. I sleep on my side and I dunno if its the pressure on my breasts or what! But yeah its often in the arm pit area.

    This happened to me too, right after DD was born. It hasn't happened since, but it was exactly what you described and it ended up being nothing, I guess.
