I have had plugged milk ducts before with ds#1 and once already with ds#2 that cleared up in a day. This time is kicking my butt, though. I've had a fever for 2 days. I nurse ds every 2-3 hours (on demand). I know I could pump every time after nursing, but I really think he is emptying my breasts (I have it in both breasts this time). In the middle of the night I am not going to get up and pump after. I am massaging the sore area every time he nurses and trying to put heat on them most times he nurses. Is there anything else I should be doing? Also, is there any way to prevent this? I did some push-ups at yoga on Wed. and then it got bad Thurs. morning. Could overworking my arms/pecs be the problem? Any help would be appreciated!!
