How long for a blocked milk duct to heal?? And what helped you?
My son is almost 3 months old and breastfeeding has been much more challenging than I expected. I had thrush and cracked/bleeding nipples at the beginning, but we worked through it and have had a while with out pain. It was such a relief! But now I am pretty sure I have some clogged/blocked ducts. I have two huge lumps in one side that are so tender and sore. I have been trying to apply heat and have been feeding on that side first as often as possible. After doing some reading I realize I need to rest more. But other than that, is there anything else that helped anyone? This has been going on for almost a week now with maybe a little improvement. How long does it normally take to heal? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks!
