As hard as I try to pump every 3-4 hours, there are days when I fail to reach that target. Thus leaving the milk as if screaming to come out or my boobs might burst like a water balloon.
Anyways, sometimes when I pump my engorged breasts, somewhere in there somehow one part refuses to come out. You know what I mean?
I could pump and pump and that one part just stays a lil bit hard as compared to the rest of the breast. Eventually it comes out via the pump or direct feeding.
I guess it happens to other people too, no?
A friend of mine was hospitalized for a week because of an infection of the milk duct. It's called Mastitis if I'm not mistaken, kan? The doctor had to use the needle to take out the blocked milk. She said it was like the milk turned to cheese. That freaked me out!
So the lesson here is: don't leave your breasts engorged.
