    A woman’s milk ducts can become blocked forming a small painful lump in the breast and causing inflammation, if your baby doesn’t completely empty your breasts of milk when they feed.

    This shouldn’t happen if you are feeding often and making sure your baby finishes one breast before starting another . Change your feeding position so your baby is more able to remove the milk from all your milk ducts. Avoid wearing anything too tight around your breasts including an underwired bra

    Massage your breast as you feed your baby to help unblock the ducts, also try applying a warm cloth to your breasts for few minutes before you feed.

    It’s such a painful experience. The mum can also take ibuprofen to relieve inflammation
