Clogged Milk Ducts: Symptoms

Engorgement, infrequent or skipped feedings, pressure on the duct, inflammation, and nursing frequently are some of the symptoms of clogged duct while breastfeeding. Jacquelyn Garcia, Lactation Nurse with the Center for Women and Infants at South Miami Hospital, says the mom should pump every three hours, because the longer she waits, the more at risk she is for getting clogged ducts. She recommends massaging the breasts when you are pumping, and you can put some warm washcloths on your breasts to help you.
