I was so busy at work Friday night that I didnt pump until 130am (eight hours after my son had last fed) and since then I have had a plugged milk duct which is so painful :"(
Ive had them before with DS1 (always after working a busy shift and not being able to pump for long intervals) but they always resolved quickly, like within 24hr. This one has been sticking around since Saturday morning and every time my milk lets down I wanna cry.
Ive started pumping after each feeding to see if I can dislodge it, besides doing this and heat does anyone else no of any good tricks???

Hover nursing. Put your baby on the floor or the bed, and nurse him while on all fours. This was always my magic trick.
I've also heard that massaging it out with something that vibrates can work wonders.

Point the baby's chin toward the clog
Massage in the shower
Be sure to start the massage *in front* of the plug, not behind it.

I was also going to say massage it out. I have had 2 this go around and both have dislodged by massaging it as painful as it was.

Ouch! I've heard that hovering on all fours while nursing is a really good thing. Hope it resolves sooner rather than later!

Massaging always worked for me. But I remember how painful it was. GL!

I've had something going on with one of mine for a couple weeks now. I thought I had a yeast infection because I had a white spot but then I read that could be a milk blister caused by a clogged duct. I kept feeling hard spots too. It seemed to get better after a few days but never completely 100%. That side is still painful but no more shooting pains and writhing in pain during latch on/let down. Hot showers and rubbing seemed to help. I also took Ibuprophen for a few days.

The white thing is def. a milk blister, you gotta get it out or open it otherwise will continue to have a plugged duct. I had one, my breast was sore/tender for atleast a week. My doc said that the pump is not enough to unplug it, only your LO.
