I just had my baby girl early early Thursday morning, and my milk came in last night. My breasts are pretty engorged, but manageable. She's been nursing a lot and when she isn't I have an ice pack to help with the swelling.
I just put some deodorant on and noticed that both of my armpits have a lump, the right side is larger than the left. I'm assuming this is because I'm so engorged? But I don't remember it happening when I had my son.
Anyone else deal with something like that before?
a clogged duct, maybe?
put on a warm compress and massage it for a bit.
It's probably just breast tissue that is engorged too
Do you have a pump? You should pump to relieve the engorgement, or you'll end up with mastitis. Is the lump tender to the touch? If so, it could be a clogged milk duct. If not, it's just a full milk duct or mammary gland.
it can happen... the ducts go into your armpits too. engorged boobs suck!especially when baby finally sleeps through the night. i still didn't get sleep since i had to pump to stay out of pain
Thank you very much for the responses ladies!!
