RE: Breast/nipple pain? Anyone help with symptoms... mastitis? ducts? (Poss tmi)
I've had the same thing happen to me a couple of times. The first time it was that I was covering myself too soon after nursing(usually happens when we have company) and not letting myself dry well enough. In other words, the moisture caused a crack in the nipple. My solution is to go without a bra for a couple of nights(I've worn a bra 24/7 since baby was born). Once the tiny crack healed I was fine.
The second time, I think it was a minor plugged duct. I massaged as she nursed and even manually expressed some milk. It hurt as I did it but felt a lot better when I finally worked it out. I have to say that she's not nursing as much as I'd like her to because she's so busy exploring her world. I think that might have been why I had this issue just last week.
Truth does not become more true by virtue of the fact that the entire world agrees with it, nor less so even if the whole world disagrees with it.
