Is it possible to have a painful breast without it being mastitis?
I've battled with blocked ducts since I started breastfeeding 4 months ago. The lumps usually take 3-4 feeds (sometimes more) to clear and are usually back within a couple of hours, and no matter how hard and often I massage they just don't want to clear
But the last 3 nights DS has slept from his last feed (6PMish) to around 5AM so now my breast isn't getting that extra feed at 1AM to clear the ducts... Is it just my breast getting used to one less feed or am I developing mastitis? Ever since I woke up this morning it's been so painful
