Clogged duct

Can a clogged duct feel like more than one lump? I have had them before. This feels the same but the duct size feels like three small lumps instead of one firm area.

Definitely. Point baby's chin toward clog and nurse away. Massage and warm compresses will also help. Dangle nursing, too.

She's 10 months. I thought I had seen the last of these things!

She's probably fluctuating in her nursing pattern, so they can occur any time.

She nurses throughout the night. Sometimes every hour and a half sometimes three When she does she'll nurse for a minute or two maybe less maybe more and then goes back to sleep. I'm her paci I think.

I still get clogged ducts occasionally, DS is 22 months and I'm 6 months pregnant, lol.

You can get clogged ducts if your bra or shirt is too tight. Not saying this is how you got it just saying it's not too hard to get them
