I’ve obviously got a blocked duct/mastitis type thing. Yesterday my boob felt sore and heavy on one side and underneath. I did all the obvious things, massaged it gently, expressed milk as best i could, changed feeding position (actually managed the rugby ball hold too), wore very supportive bra, fed differently last night etc etc.
I’m not a good expresser so i had to feed her really or make it worse. Its actually “feeling” a lot better today and i don’t feel ill at all but i do have a pinky patch in a circle on that size, about 1-2 inches across. Like i say it seems to feel a bit better but josie has just thrown up her whole feed. So should i have stopped feeding her on that side? And if so, what on earth will i do – my milk just stops if i express with hand or pump, i’ve never been any good at it and i will just get fuller and fuller. What should i do?
