Question Almost weaned, but now I have a plugged duct or mastitis

I know the common treatment for this is to nurse and/or pump. Well, he's nearly weaned and has slept the past few nights all the way through so I'm sure this is why this is happening.. so I don't want to keep the milk going since he's nearly weaned here at 27 months. Any suggestions at how else I can deal with this?

Not sure on mastitis, but if it is a clogged duct, I hop in the shower and massage it out, toward the nipple. That should hopefully get it all out

Thank you.. I have been doing that, and it indeed is getting better! I've been taking HOT showers a couple times a day while massaging it.. the lump is getting smaller and smaller and the pain is decreasing... I started on antibiotics yesterday too.

So glad its getting better. I had a clogged duct and I did the massage and hot showers along with nursing worked awesome!

When I get clogged ducts, this hurts like hell, but I squeeze the little white dot it leaves on my nipple until it's not clogged anymore. It hurts for about 5 minutes afterwards, but way better than house of pain.
