no, really. Last time, I got these weird and very painful lumps in my armpits. Turned out they were the tail of Spence, something nobody I asked locally had ever heard of.
Well, this is the new weird lactation thing that's happening to me. I noticed a drop of milk about 1 cm above my nipple but still on the aerola yesterday. I thought it was just something that landed there during nursing and didn't think anything else further about it. But later, I saw the milk bead up out of my skin at that same spot during a letdown! It is very definitely milk.
There's a little bump there, and I thought it was just a gland -- can't remember the name of the gland, but they produce moisture for the nipple skin -- but I didn't know milk could actually come out of it! Or have I gotten pores in weird parts of my breast this time?
Otherwise, nursing is going OK. Yeah, my nipples got sore, but a) I'm redheaded and b) have fair, delicate skin, so I expected it, even with a good latch. And I produce milk like a Holstein cow so engorgement is normal for me at this point, and it's not that bad, actually. Baby is doing well and soaking all his diapers and making lots of stool. He's nursing more often than my last one -- and even more often than my first baby who was an every hour nurser -- but oh well.
Why does the weirdness always happen to me?
