Evening Primrose Oil capsules are AMAZING for this!
I've heard of taking Lecithin, but couldn't find a supplement that didn't contain an allergen for Ari.
Leftie is constantly clogging & usually it would take 3-4 days of heating pads, nursing on that side nearly all day, pumping like crazy, etc. Then it would clog again with in days, so bad that there would be a huge lump of milk just beneath the nipple, making it hard for Ari to latch properly.
500 mgs of EPO solved my plugged duct overnight. I've been taking it for 5 days & it hasn't recurred. It seems like my let down is faster & stronger too.
