Any recommendations on how to get rid of a clogged duct?! And for the pain?

Ouch! Those are so painful! You have to knead it out and unblock it, hot shower also helps.

Warm compresses, and lots of pumping! A warm shower also will help! Keep baby nursing as much as possible!

So weird but a cabbage leaf on on my boob, just cupped it around my whole breast and popped on my nursing bra, and a heating pad slightly higher on my chest. I left it for about an hour then did another heating pad while I pumped and massaged the area I felt it in. I had clogged ducts like 4 times. Good luck!

As hot as you can stand showers while working the mass out towards the nipple. It hurts but after about 20 minutes in the shower it will start to drain. The other trick I learned was laying on the side and letting the baby nurse. It would seem to open it. The more you let them use that side, the more it will help unclog it.

Soak in an extremely hot bath and massage that area. Also massage that area while nursing until it goes away. Definitely ouchie but it helps!
