Clogged nipple ducts
Had my baby on the 12th, Monday, and today is Saturday.
My milk flow is super weak, not to mention it hurts like hell when I nurse!
The pediatrician said his latch is fine.
But my nips are starting to scab and my boobs definitely feel full of something! They’re very tender and getting fuller/stiffer
I don’t think it’s a supply issue, I am assuming my ducts are just clogged.
I’ve been using lanolin to ease the pain and heating pads after I feed.
When I try to pump, I get maybe an ounce after 20 minutes (total of 1.5 oz for both sides)
Any advice on how to unclog these sprinkler heads?! I want my babe to get the good stuff but the pediatrician is recommending 2oz of formula a day to help weight gain..
