cantora87 Posted January 25, 2014 Share Posted January 25, 2014 I'm dealing with a whopper of a plugged duct, the kind I had when my son was a newborn (he's 12 months now). Reading up about them on Kelly Mom and apparently one cause of plugs is a lot of fat in the momma's diet--makes the milk so thick it gets stuck. I think mine is from a perfect storm of causes (abrupt end to night nursing, dry nipples possibly cracked, AND the extra fat this week). A recommendation for plugs caused by fatty milk is to take lecithin, which supposedly emulsifies the fats so they don't clump and form a plug. However, most (all?) lecithin is derived from soy, which we can't have, and I don't normally like to ingest anyway.... Any suggestions? Is there any lecithin NOT derived from soy? How can I keep my milk high in fats but low in fat clumps? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
