I've made it 6 months (How? I don't know!) BF my LO and I've struggled the entire time with plugged ducts (thankfully, no mastitis). With help from this board I found Lecithin and I've been taking it religiously ever since. I started with four (1200mg as recommended) and trickled down to one pill a day. I got a plug so I went back up to for until I didn't have another one for a week and started to trickle down again and stayed at two pills-a-day. I was doing fabulously for a while and I got another plugged duct and I've been taking four pills again for the last week.
Right now I'm dealing with another plugged duct. Is this normal to continue to get plugs while taking the Lecithin? Is there something more I can do to avoid plugs?
I block nurse (same breast for 3-4 hours and then switch) and I don't feel engorged, so I don't know why I'm getting plugs.
