I feel like I have a mild case of it, and I am making sure I continue to breastfeed. If I dont feel well tomorrow I am going to DR.
I had this once when my son was first born and it's extremely painful especially when your baby tries to feed. But it passed with the use of a heating pad thank god.
I haven't gotten it, but I do think I could have a clogged duct.. the right side of my right breast is sore, and I get a pulling feeling when Penelope nurses..
Ah.. fortunately, I have not experienced this.. but my best friend.. and she said it was NOT fun, very painful.. and had to go to the doctor.. ah! Have you experienced this, Tracy?
Yes I am experiencing it now. Its my left side for day two, mild, pain a little bit of hot, little swollen. I am going to see if it gets worse then go to doctor.
