My lc told me for a clogged duct to put a warm compress in before nursing, and either put babies chin to where it will massage it, or you massage it while nursing and then cold compress for 15 min after nursing.



Mine was a lump at the top of my breast near my armpit. It was painful especially when it was full.

Puttin his chin to it would be kinda hard bc its on the outside. I can't twll it there's a lump back there or not but it hurts like hell. But I will try that... see if it helps.

Yeah, mine was really high up, so his chin couldn't massage it, so she told me to massage it while he nurses. The hot compress helps with the pain too, so massaging doesn't hurt so bad. Mine went away after doing that for a week or so.



And for me, I microwaved a wet dish towel for a few seconds to get it warm and put it on there when it cooled to the hottest temperature I could stand. And for the cold compress I put another dish towel wet in the refrigerator for when he was done.

Massaging the area while bf helped me. I had the beginning of mastitis with my last daughter. That crap hurts!
