lumpy boob during the night

I went out for a couple of drinks last night (for about the third time since dd was born, hurrah!) and when I got home and went to bed my left breast felt quite full. when dd (11 mo) woke up at about 1 she fed from that side for a few mins. when she had finished it still felt full but now all lumpy and almost square?!? it wasn't painful. I fed her on that side again at about 4.30am and after that it was back to normal. seems normal this morning.

is this something nasty brewing or just a bit of blockage do you think?
thanks for any advice.

Sounds like it was a blocked duct to me, but that it has cleared itself through feeding (the best approach!) Just keep an eye on it!

thanks for your reply QueenFee
all seems fine at the mo but I will keep checking for bumps and lumps for a few days

Sounds to me too like one side was fuller than the other. And as you say - it cleared with the second feed. If it happens again and doesn't seem to clear turn your baby round so they feed at a different angle and that should empty it.

(Lucky you getting a night out - hurray!)
