To sum it up, pretty much, the milk is not coming out from a few ducts on one side of one breast, unless i press directly on the duct or squeeze the area specifically.
This has been happening with both the pump and when dd nurses.
On one side, it feels like my breast isn't being emptied all the way.. at first i thought it was due to dd not nursing well b/c of teething. However, it's happened today as well twice while pumping. I also got a normal amount of milk from the expression every time.
The side will hurt, not excruciatingly, and feel lumpy, even after a session. I can manually express, and the ducts will empty- it will literally spray out, and i can express the different ones, and feel & see them spray. This hasn't happened before, esp after pumping or nursing. It's beginning to hurt more and more and i am very worried i'm going to get an infection or something. I have only done the manual express/spray a few times but it seems to 'build up' until i do..
There's no redness, and I cannot tell that anything's clogged. What's happening?
Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?
