Lumps in Breast at Letdown

Every time my milk lets down, small lumps appear in both breasts, all around the nipple. It's mildly painful and looks swollen for a minute or two and then subsides.

This has been going on since my baby's birth, 4 months ago. It's not plugged ducts, and only happens at letdown.

I cannot find anything on this in any of my breastfeeding books, and my consultant didn't have any ideas.


Mommy of 8 and thankful for all our blessings!

Re: Lumps in Breast at Letdown

Totally normal. I've probably nursed a total of 12 years, with 6 babies. I jokingly say my boobs are activated. Meaning I'm producing fresh milk. if you take a "lump" and gently squeeze it, milk will come out. It's just filled with milk.
