My son is 10 weeks old and I just recently developed yet another plugged duct! I've dealt with these before twice, but this time it seems different. I nurse him on the affected side first (the left) and apply heat whenever possible. I also try to massage it out while I'm in the shower and while he nurses. The plug doesn't seem to be moving towards the surface. The lump feels like it's getting smaller, but it's been there for almost 48 hours.
How long do plugged ducts typically last?
