How to prevent a plugged milk duct

Milchstau in der Brust

The period of breastfeeding is a special phase for many mothers, during which they form a close bond with their child. However, sometimes issues like milk duct can arise, making breastfeeding more challenging and leading to uncomfortable consequences. Here, you will learn what milk congestion is, its potential consequences, and how our LAYA III vibrator can serve as an innovative massaging device to help resolve a milk congestion and make breastfeeding more pleasant.

What is a clogged milk duct anyway?

Milk congestion occurs when milk in the breast's milk ducts cannot flow adequately. This leads to a buildup of breast milk in the mammary glands, resulting in a painful and swollen area in the breast. It is essential to understand that milk congestion is not caused by an overproduction of milk but by the insufficient drainage of the milk already produced. The causes of milk congestion can be diverse, including irregular breastfeeding, improper positioning of the baby during nursing, or inadequate emptying of the breast.

Are there any consequences of milk congestion?

Untreated milk congestion can have various unpleasant consequences, affecting not only the mother but also the baby:
This condition can lead to pain and discomfort as the milk congestion causes a painful pressure in the breast, accompanied by redness and swelling. This can be extremely uncomfortable for the breastfeeding mother and significantly affect her well-being. Further issues arise due to the hindered milk flow: Breastfeeding can become frustrating and laborious for the baby, who may struggle to get enough milk, resulting in weight loss and dissatisfaction. Lastly, milk congestion can lead to a breast infection known as mastitis. Mastitis can cause fever, chills, and overall malaise.
