THE CLOGGED MILK DUCTS TREATMENT SERVICE
WHAT CAUSES A CLOGGED MILK DUCT?

The glandular milk tissues in the breast are organised into 10 – 20 comparments like a lemon, each comparments has one milk duct. Sometimes milk ducts clog (perhaps due to solidified milk that causes the blockage of the milk flow). This condition results in one or more small lumps on the breast that my hurt upon touching.

SOME COMMON SITUATIONS

  • Mommy’s nipples are flat or indented that cause difficulties for the baby to suck, resulting in milk collection and obstruction.
  • Improper baby latching and sucking can cause cracks on the mommy’s nipples that facilitate bacteria’s entering the body causing inflammation and obstruction of milk ducts.
  • Mommy cleans her breast and nipples incorrectly.
  • Mommy does not squeeze out the milk after breastfeeding.
