I just Emptied . . . . .

About 2 oz of milk down the drain.

Woke up this morning with a clogged duct.  Nothing I did during the day made it better; in fact, it was worse this evening than this morning.  There was a buldge in my breast behind the clog.  OUCH  So after dinner I took a long hot shower and after I started feeling less sore, I started hand expressing, I'd guess at least two ounces worth (when my son was nursing, I pumped some so I have a fairly good idea of what that amount looks like). 

I feel like a whole new woman now!

Are you a political "independent?"  Tired of feeling like you only have Democrats or Republicans to choose from?  Well, there are many small parties active all across the United States.  Learn more at Third Party Americans.

Soaking in salt water helps too, as does nursing with baby's chin pointed towards the clog.
