LET'S TALK BOOBIES. Coping/Preventing Clogs/Mastitis. That's right sis we are talking about your magical milk makers and we are getting down to the gritty guidance some are not always so fortunate enough to receive from their immediate support system. Tag a newly nursing mother or pregnant person and let's empower! It is so important to keep things flowing, even between nursing sessions; stagnant and blocked milk can cause inflammation and infection which can be challenging during your breastfeeding/parenting journey. It can be agonizing, painful and feel downright defeating to face clogs and mastitis. So let's get empowered on how to PREVENT. Some quick tips for you: -Milkshakes: Nope we aren't talking about blending up your favorite icecream, we have deemed the shaking tactic something a little bit more creative. Place your thumb ontop of your breast and cup the bottom with your other 4 fingers, dangle and shake, use your fingers to vibrate and shake around the whole breast/towards the nipple. -Hand Expression: Get. It. OOOOOOUT. Massage and squeeze out as much as you can, dangle and express. This relieves and releases built up milk that is waiting to be expressed. -Vibrator: Take your LaVie Lactation massager or something similar and massage your breast to relieve and release clogs, preventing mastitis https://amzn.to/2QPQm5j https://amzn.to/2OBXXRZ -Oil Massage: Lather up and massage gently with your fingers, this can be done anytime and is especially effective under warm running water in the shower -Teatits Boil up some of HerbLores Lactation tea, throw a few ice cubes in to help cool down and soak your breasts in the mix, or soak a wash cloth in the mix and lay over your breasts. https://amzn.to/2XEpwyh -HappyDucts: Prevent and fight off clogs/mastitis with our top picked herbal tincture from WishGarden https://amzn.to/2D7TjWu -Manual BreastPump: The natural suction supports your breasts and catches your extra flow https://amzn.to/2scrvyl -Breastpack: Lay over your breasts, warmed or cooled for relief and release https://amzn.to/2KPy0gW -Soothing Silver: These silver cups soothe and cure cracked or inflamed nipples which can lead to clogs/mastitis https://amzn.to/2QJKWsd -Nipple Cream: Prevent cracks that could lead to clogs https://amzn.to/2rgFQsU Have some favorite tips that have worked for you?
