Have you ever struggled with a clogged milk duct? Maybe a nipple bleb? If you have, you know it can be painful and frustrating. Or it could be even worse…It develops into mastitis. Ouch! As it turns out, most folks who breastfeed are going to have at least one clog, so better be prepared!
Join Heather and Maureen to find out what clogged ducts are all about. Why they happen, what can be done to treat them, and what research we have to guide the way.
