    Hi witwicky and everyone, I am actually under the care of a GP who is a LC as well. I also just realized that I have milk blisters as well which mayb contributing to lumps and blocked ducts. I have been dipping my nipples in hot water and message, message. I also have oversupply issue. Been using cabbage leaves. Still get lumpy breasts but they aren't painful.finger crossed they stop there! On top of this I have thrush as well. I plan to wean soon as ds will be starting solid this week. I could have written a book after weaning!!
