    okay a milk bleb appeared last night, and I tried like heck to get rid of it, I was up all night nursing and pumping and still nothing!!
    I emailed dr jack newman, and he said just from my description, if it's not better in a day or so it could be an abcess based on the size-a lump 4-5 inches in diameter (but can't be sure w/o looking at it)

    I've been dangle nursing, or trying, but bennett is stubborn and keeps rolling over! So i tried to dangle pump over a hot bowl of water, that was quite a sight

    Isn't pumping fun? I once pumped in the shower bent over so I was "dangling"

    no kidding...DH walked in the living room to me doing that, it was hot
    I just read on Kelly mom about a milk duct obstruction, that sounds exactly what my deal is. I'm just praying that it does not turn into mastitis, I've got things to do!

    ugh Heather, I had something like that when max was like 1, maybe not nursing as much . Like the mother of all clogs and when it finally came out it was HUGE and looked like a chunk of glue that I fished out of Max's mouth (sorry so gross ). I hope u get relief.

    ugh that is what I'm on the lookout for, thanks for the heads up on that possibility Jenna! Some days he nurses a lot, and some days not-right how he has two molars and two canines that just broke through and he doesn't want to nurse
