Sore Breast

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So my right boob feels kinda like it did when I'm engorged. It's sore to the touch, but I don't see any redness and it feels normal other than the pain. It hurts down on the underside where it would be touching my belly if I didn't have a bra on. 

 

Could it be a plugged duct? What do you ladies think? I don't want to do something that could make it worse, but I was thinking of massaging it next time Liam eats.

Sounds like it could be.  You could try warm compress on the area right before he nurses, and massage the area while he is nursing.  It might hurt a bit, but should loosen up anything that is plugged.

That's just how I felt when I had a plugged duct. I ignored it though and then it really started to hurt the next day. Good luck!
