Re: Blocked ducts?
Check out this link on mastitis and plugged ducts: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/mom/mastitis.html. It should help you sort out if either problem is an issue for you.
To help lefty along:
- Pump that side even more frequently than righty
- When you get your baby back to the breast, try to start more feedings on the underachieving side, as babies suck hardest and empty the breast most thoroughly at the beginning of the feeding
- Vary your pumping/nursing position to encourage maximum drainage of all areas of the breast
- Watch out for plugged ducts/mastitis and treat them appropriately (see link above) if you see symptoms
