Are your breasts emptied regularly enough?

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

Maybe try pumping after she eats every time. It could be that she isn't actually getting you empty. Not fully emptying can cause that. If you empty the rest out by pumping, that may stop the problem.

But then she's run into an oversupply issue and get more clogs :\

Try block feeding to slow production.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, if I pump after i feed her then my body is gonna keep producing more milk :/

What's block feeding btw? Oh and I don't think I got it all the way unclogged, it still hurts and I feel a lil lump. I'm hoping this goes away soon.

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!

I agree not to pump. The pump isn't as efficient as a baby and can result in more clogs. Don't wear an underwire bra. You can take ibuprofen to reduce swelling around the duct.

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.
