I'm new to La Leche League. First time posting. No local chapter or much support. I'm a busy working mom/student, and I need to get a severely clogged duct unclogged! I can't focus on studying, and I'm in serious need of help. I've tried everything the lactation consultant has recommended. Is there anything out of the box I can do?
I've done hot compresses, hot shower, massage, vibration from Sonicare toothbrush, constant pumping, nursing on that side. The clog seems to be growing, and my breast is hurting!
I have a prophylactic prescription, and I just sent my husband back to the store for some lecithin.
Is there anything else I can try? I've literally tried it all. Oh, even nursing on all fours! Which was awkward, but I didn't care. Not only did it not work - my three-month old just found it hilarious and giggled at me most of the time.
