Yeah, don't know what to call this:

- baby started getting mad about nursing on left breast, so I just kept making her start there, and if she got too frustrated would calm her with feeding from the right then switch back

- it got worse

- I could tell there was milk/could hand express but it looked like it was only squirting from one spot

- so I pumped, and 1) definitely only coming from one duct 2) I pump for thirty minutes and get maybe an ounce. greensad.gif

What's going on and who can help me? Doctor, lactation consultant?

i would try heat and massage, with a wet hot washcloth and see how that does. I don't know what to tell you after that! if you examine your nipple, does it look like any of the holes are crusted or anything weird?


drowning in hormones with 4 daughters and an understanding, loving hubby. also some dogs. my life is crazy and we are always learning.

Nothing looks crusty or out of place, and there's not any discomfort...though I will say the "holes", well I can only detect those (on either breast) when milk is shooting out of them lol.
