Clogged Milk Ducts

Friday, February 19, 2010

In the past few weeks, I've been getting clogged milk ducts. They are painful lumps around the breast where milk gets trapped and doesn't flow out easily. I've been able to get them unclogged using a heat compress and pumping. Sometimes it takes a second try after about 3 hours before I can get the milk out of the blocked ducts at all. I've even had to forego a round of breast feeding and just defrost some frozen breast milk from the freezer to feed baby. Once I get it flowing again, I just have to make sure to give baby the clogged side first throughout the whole day to make sure I got it all.
