So Sunday afternoon my breasts started feeling sore/full. Sort of weird because it had only been 3 hours since I had pumped (EBF, but pumped on the way to the mall so DH could feed her) and LO goes 5-7 hours at night.
Later that day it still hurt and I was really achy. Worried that it was mastitis (even though it isn't common at 8 weeks, right?) so I was sure to feed her every 2 hours, and every 3-4 overnight). The one breast that hurt more did not have a lump but the top sort of felt harder so I massaged as she ate and used warm compresses.
Woke up Monday, breast still sore (bruised feeling, especially when I take bra off) but no longer achy, just really tired. Same today, a little sore to the touch not achy. But there is an area on top of my breast that is maybe the slightest bit pink compared to the rest...
Should I just assume it was a plugged duct and I'm working through it? get checked for mastitis? something else?
Sorry for being so clueless!
