This. I had a few clogged ducts with my first child and this made a world of difference. None of them turned into mastitis, I just used warm compresses, massage, and changed up the position. When I pointed his chin toward the clog, I could actually feel a slight "tugging" in that area and I'm convinced it is what really helped things along. And it's a very simple thing to change, too.

2,014 items in 2014?
