Somehow on New Year’s Eve I had a stagnation of milk, a lump began to swell. It was impossible to express oneself. It was very sorry for myself. I then read a lot on this topic on the Internet, but decided not to experiment and turned to a doctor for registration. Unfortunately, she could not help me.
I had a lot of milk. When it came to the chest it was such a pain, as if it had been beaten with sticks. The son of relief did not bring, ate little and lazy. The remains had to be decanted, and there were a lot of them. Even then, thoughts began to creep in that I would not feed for a long time of my own accord. And then there’s a bump!
The first thing the doctor did was inject a no-silo and oxytocin and tried to dissuade me. The lump was not completely eliminated. Then she gave me antibiotics, as well as compresses with camphor spirit, cabbage leaves, a warm shower, and calmly let her go home, knowing that the New Year is coming tomorrow and all the clinics will close for the holidays. And if something happens to me, you will have to either call an ambulance or go to a paid clinic.
And yet it happened
The stagnation was becoming harder, and the changes were taking place before our eyes. I did everything that the doctor told me, even though I saw on the Internet that it is impossible to put alcohol in any case and you need to be extremely careful with a warm shower. But I was given advice by a qualified specialist. You never know what they write on the Internet.
As later I was told by two doctors of mammology, who are candidates of medical sciences – only antibiotics were good from all appointments – thanks to them I did not fall down with a temperature below 40 and did not fall under the knife to doctors who had a New Year holiday, like all Russians .
The surest way
Girls, who would not say or write, do not need to reinvent the wheel – the easiest and most effective way is to set, set and set. There are many other ways, but they, believe me, are secondary. If you are lazy, feel sorry for yourself – stagnation is inevitable. Unfortunately, I tested it on myself. Learn from the mistakes of others.
By the way, it is better not to hope for breast pumps. Learn to strain your hands. Breast pumps save, but not much. Until the end they do not decant, and this is necessary in the first 3 months of breastfeeding, especially if the baby does not eat much, like my son. And in no case should not interrupt breastfeeding.
Ask if I feed?
I feed. Despite all the troubles, pain, fear. Now I am glad that I overcame myself when it was hard and I wanted to quit everything. I clenched my fist and thought only about the health of the child. I clenched my teeth and got over it. But now my son and I are happy to eat milk! Thanks to my grandmother, who said on time: Honey, be patient only three months, then everything will be fine. First of all, your baby needs it!
