    Default Blocked duct after weaning - help please!

    Hi

    My son is 6 months and I'm returning to work soon. 3 weeks ago I began replacing one BF a day with a bottle. Last week I replaced with 2, and this week 3. I still intend to BF him morning and evenings for however long he wants to.

    Everything has been fine til this morning when I've woken with a very sore right breast. There is no redness or lump but it feels severely bruised. I'm pretty sure it's a blocked duct as I experienced this in the early days of breast feeding.

    I've been pumping and massaging my breast but don't want to pump too much or else I'll produce too much milk. What else can I do? It's really painful!

    Thanks for reading

    Wow an electric toothbrush!? I'll try it

    I don't want to feed him during the day as won't this increase my supply up again? He is used to bottles in the day and boob in the morning and evening. I pumped a bit this morning but didn't want to pump too much out ...still hurts though

    I would recommend massaging during feeds and in the shower. If you start to feel unwell at all, visit your doctor because it might develop into mastitis. Hope you feel better soon!
