I'd rather have had a sleepless night!

My extended sleep of two nights ago (read: skipped feeding) has yielded me two plugged milk ducts. Ouch.

It might not have come on so dramatically but I've spent much of the past week feeding him every hour and a half to increase my supply. Well, it worked... and then I slept like a rock while disaster struck. I can't believe how much this hurts. I think I got them both unblocked by last night, or at least some milk is coming through, but I'm still in a lot of pain.

It's always something!
