is it normal to get lumps in your breast during breastfeeding?

they seem to go away and resurface so i'm not worried about cancer really, i'm guessing its milk related

  • if it isn't painful, it isn't a plugged duct- its just the ducts filling and emptying. its a normal course of events- massage more brfore/while you nurse and it will not happen as much- also depends of the age of the baby. the only time you should worry is if it becomes hard, sore, you have a bright red spot over the sore area & you run a fever... otherwise, don't sweat it.

  • It could be a blocked duct, usually nursing will clear it up.
