    Default Clogged ducts due to sleeping on tummy?

    My favorite position to sleep is on my tummy but since I got PG with DD1 3+ years ago I have been avoiding it. When PG due to the growing belly and after that due to breast-feeding.

    Is it true that I could get clogged ducts if I sleep on my tummy?

    TIA

    I could see how that could happen I stopped sleeping on my stpmach when my chiropractor about hit me over the head when I told her I did. I haven't had back issues since

    with Eme. Stomach sleeping is bad for your body. As a Massage Therapist, I can't tell you how many messed up backs and necks I've treated because people refuse to stop. And yes, clogged ducts would not be a surprise if you were to sleep on your tummy. Lots of pressure on the boobs.

    Yes, sleeping on your breasts can cause plugged ducts.

    Thanks so much for your replies!

    I'm glad I've been doing the right thing these years.

    I've been having lots of back and neck pain when I wake up though. I guess it's due to not sleeping for long stretches yet right?
