Oh my god, my boob hurts so bad! It kept me up most of the night. I think its a duct, but my god, I can hardly feed him on it it hurts so bad. And that's just making it worse. How do I know if it's a duct vs. mastitis. Isn't he a little old for me to get mastitis. He still nurses every 3 hours or so, night and day. He does seem to eat only one at a time. I've got warm compresses on it right now. Not helping so much, but I'll keep it up. It doesn't really seem to get better after he nurses, but that could be because I keep messing with it. I can feel a flat lump about bigger than a quarter on the inside side of my breast. I try to rub it when he feeds but it practically sends my out of my chair in pain. Any suggestions?
I just pumped for the first time, I couldn't let down, so I feed him on the other side. It didn't really seem to help much. Got about an ounce
