One boob is really sore and feels like it has a hard lump or cord. I'm lucky I work from home so I can massage myself and put hot compresses on it all day. I'm doing all I can to keep from getting full-blown mastitis. That would not be fun!
IDK why this is happening now after nearly 2 years!
That sucks! For me, I noticed soreness in the afternoon and by 9pm had a full blown fever. It sucked! Make sure to get lots of rest. I tried to ride out the fever, but the next day I had to take some tylenol. It really helped. Keep us posted!

Oh yikes, I hope it doesn't get any worse! I found that taking hot showers/baths and just massaging the heck out of it really helped. Also the more you nurse to clear out that duct, the better. Good luck

I was where you are soon after nursing and so were a couple moms in my PR. One thing we found really helps is if you lay over baby to nurse. (Or in your case toddler) It's a weird position to lay in kinda hovering over baby while they lay on the bed but it really clears out all of your ducts more than any other position and it totally prevented me from developing full blown mastitis. Good Luck!
