I had a baby two days ago and my milk came in last night. We've been nursing all night and the same issue is happening again. I have the same hard area (if I squeeze my breast, I can very much feel the edges of the bum section) that's painful. Thinking it was a clog last time, I'm trying to get things moving before that area seemingly fails to make milk as we go forward, but I'm not 100% it's a clog.
Has anyone else had a similar issue or any ideas what it could be? I'm going to continue the clog remedies in hopes that I can fix whatever is going on before I fail to make milk out of that section of my breast again, but google isn't helping with any ideas., so I thought I'd check if anyone else had a similar issue.
Thanks for any help!!
Thanks for your reply. :) I ended up with a lactation consultant today who says it's not a clogged duct and thinks it may be an abscess in my breast, so I'm off to make an appointment to get it checked out. :/ Thanks for the help, though!

If you are prone to clogs, take lecithin. One capsule/day will prevent clogs. I don't know about absesses though? I got clogs a bunch and mastitis twice with my first and once I started taking lecithin it never happened again. I have been taking it from day 1 this time and no clogs. I hope you feel better.
Hope: hi! Sorry to hear you are experiencing this too! Feel better!
