Q:

How to get rid of clogged milk duct. Is it safe to feed the baby ? If not what is the best alternative. The baby is 5 months old



Hey Hema our expert will help you soon.

It's safe to continue breastfeeding if you have mastitis or a plugged duct. Breastfeeding helps clear the infection or ductal system. Weaning your baby abruptly is likely to worsen your signs and symptoms

You can breastfeed as it's safe. For alternative you can go with formula milk. My sister gives her baby Aptamil formula milk. It's the closest to breast milk and has prebiotics which improve immunity of the baby.
