Good to know! The Nature Valley granola bars don't seem to do anything for me, even eating both bars in the pack, but the breakfast biscuits don't cost that much, so they're work a try! I think this weekend I'm going to make basically a peanut butter version of no-bake cookies with the old-fashioned oats and see if they help. If they don't, they sure will taste good!

I'm actually pumping! But it's not because DS is sleeping. I told DH he had to give him a bottle and I would pump because I haven't like all week at night! And maybe a nice full bottle will fill him better and he will sleep longer? Fingers crossed!

I have been skipping my night pump too and it's starting to show! I only got one oz tonight But DD nursed a lot about two hours before that so maybe she just ate a lot. I hope so. It stresses me out when my supply dips. I cannot pump enough as it is!

What a slap in the face.... To have to deal with a low supply AND mastitis?? It's just not fair. I didn't even know you could get mastitis without getting a blockage first. My Boo b hurts so bad :'( and I feel so very icky :'( I just wanna sleep but no I gotta pump pump pump to keep this from getting worse. :'( Sorry for the pitty party. This just sucks

Oh no Kaja!! That sounds so horrible. I hope it gets cleared up soon. This is so hard to do without that added complication.

I'm up pumping again and having DH give a bottle, I've got a stubborn clog, small but incredibly painful because of where it is. Not having any luck with it yet and it hurts when I'm trying to sleep.

Thanks ladies. Tynie, I hope you get your clog out soon! I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

Somehow I ended up with awful clogged ducts! The whole top of my right boob is hard and lumpy. I had three nights in a row when I didn't nurse or pump for several hours, but all seemed fine when I did feed. And this is several days after at this point, so I'm completely taken by surprise! As the day went on today for some reason my boob started to feel bruised. At first I thought I got a little overzealous with the compression while pumping, but as the day went on I started suspecting it wasn't just a bruise. I had two blocked milk pores and managed to clear one of them, but the second is being stubborn. It hurts so bad... I'll be doing some night pumping for sure tonight!

So I still haven't been able to clear one of the blocked pores, so I brought a needle to work with me today... That should be fun! I currently have one of the heat therapy packs on it and the best way I can describe this feeling is it feels like my boob wants to vomit. I wonder how forceful that letdown is going to be when I finally get it unblocked!

Welp, mastitis it is! I started having nausea, aches all over, and feverish symptoms. I have an appointment this afternoon to get an antibiotic. I was hoping I could avoid this! I've gotten two stringy bits out of the clogged pore and it's not done yet. I'll be spending some time in the shower when I get home... Warm compression on the nipple seems to be doing the trick as both times I got some of the blockage out was after I'd used that. When I pump it feels like my boob is trying to give birth to razor blades, though!
