Signs of Mastitis?

Have any of you breastfeeding/pumping mamas experienced lumps in your breasts? With or without pain? I just got done pumping and I felt my right breast and it seemed harder on the bottom and felt like a bruise to the touch. I will definitely be consulting my doctor, but just wanted to see if it was normal first.

Mastitis. It happens. Try to take hot shower and let water hit in them. Also make sure you tell your Dr.

Sounds like a clogged duct! Do warm compress, gentle circular massage while pumping/feeding, warn shower. Contact your Dr asap before it turns into mastitis, which has nasty flu like symptoms.

Clogged duct, the only way I can get them out is for my baby to nurse a long time. I had tried the warm compresses, massaging, and they do not work if I pump

You’re clogged. Warm compress, massage, and extra pumping and/or nursing. Some moms get better relief by hand expressing so they can get at that one spot more.

Warm wash cloth and massage! Pump/fed alot
