  • if you are pumping and nothing happens and your son won't nurse then it sounds like you are either drying up or dried up..try taking a hot will only help for a little while but it makes a big difference. You may also want to be checked for Mastitis. It is an infection in the breast that causes engorgement and clogged milk ducts. It is very painful and can also make your breast hot to the touch and red.. I hope this helps..look it up on google and see what you think...I would also go to the doctor!!

  • Its not mastitis i had it when he was first born and this time its only my left boob. I will take a shower and try to nurse again

  • Try a really warm shower/bath and warm compresses. You could be engorged and the warmth can relieve that.
