I've been very lucky, bf all 3 dds and no blockages, mastitis, etc.
However, today I have noticed a lump in my actual nipple and bf is painful on that side. Thinking this is a blocked duct (or something??). Will this go away by itself or do I need to do something?
Thanks.

Put a hot flannel before/whilst feeding and massage from outwards towards the nipple. Also try to get her to feed with ther chin where the lump his (might require a little bit of acrobatics). Homeopathic remedies are worth trying as well, it worked for me.

Whatever you do, do not stop feeding on that side even if it is painful, quite the opposite, try to get you DD to feed more on that side. All the best
