Yeah, she usually feeds every 3 hours consistently. Sometimes she goes longer without feeding. I guess I should pump if she goes longer than that. I also believe I make more milk than she drinks. We got rid of the plugged duct this morning, thank goodness
How many clogs have you gotten so far? With my oldest, I got about one a month for the first 5 months. I believe I had an oversupply issue. This time around, I have been lucky. I just got my first one last night and my daughter is 3 months old. I just got it cleared and it was hard work! One thing I'm doing differently this time around is NOT pumping. It really helped my oversupply issue. I also massage and try to drain the breast before I let her switch over to the other one.
Som tips are: nurse her in different positions (cradle and football hold), don't wear a constricting bra, don't sleep on your tummy, and alternate breasts at each feeding. I believe my clog started bc I forgot to alternate breasts yesterday and she didn't feed as much overall. Also, check her latch. Sometimes a poor latch can result in more clogs. Hang in there and keep nursing - I know how frustrating and painful it can be!
Before you nurse put on a hot HOT cloth (as hot as you can stand it) and then massage your breasts.
I had multiple clogs in both my breasts at different times in one day. I had to do 40 minutes on the pump each time with hot cloths and massages before they finally deflated. I literally had to squeeze the lumps to get them to go away.
Thanks for the tips ladies, the clogg did go away yesterday but it came back, I still have it and my nipple is really sore, it's so painful to nurse. I'm gonna try to massage it more it just doesn't seems to to go away.. Ughhhhh I just want it gone!!
