I am having a seriously un-fun issue: blocked ducts. Please help me.
I have tried steaming, showering, soaking, warming, ibuprofen, massage (GOD AWFUL PAIN), expressing, pumping (even on max, nada), feeding the baby every hour or two, prayer...
I have no fever, no red lines. My breast is not hot, not red. But it has a lemon sized lump on one side (toward armpit) and another keylime sized one toward center.
I have dangle fed that baby, put both of us in insane positions to try to help. There is no obvious anything on the nipple that would indicate a surface obstruction.
So please, please help me.
What now? What next? I will call the doc tomorrow but would love some kind words.
This is seriously painful and frustrating and scary and a bit more than I can handle on top of everything else. This is now the end of day 2.
