Swollen Montgomery Glands
..I got this weird bump on my areola that has become swollen since I had the baby in February... I decided to brave the search results and started googling.. Apparently it's a swollen Montgomery gland.. Treatment? Hot compress before nursing to open glands up and help it pop... If that doesn't work, lance it... Well..it said go to the doctor to lance it but personally I would rather lance it at home and cry in my own bathroom than be bawling my eyes out in a cold exam room (been there, done that. It's no fun).... so if any other breastfeeding mom has a swollen, painful bump on her areola don't freak out too much. :) So.. here goes trying to get this thing to pop and stay away.
