      Happy ducts

      This tincture works wonders when I’ve experienced clogged ducts. Would highly recommend to have it on hand if you are a breast feeding mama!

      Fast acting

      This stuff is amazing and needed by any breast feeding mama!

      Must have for nursing moms!

      I don’t like to be without this on hand anymore. Mastitis can set in so fast and this always prevents it. I never had trouble with plugged ducts until my third baby—he had tongue and lip ties and though we had them cut something about the way he nursed made me prone to it every now and again if I wasn’t extra careful. He was extremely sensitive to the sunflower lecithin when he was just a newborn and it would constipate him. So I went on the hunt for something else that could help and thank God I found this. If something feels painful I take a dose of this immediately and follow it up at least a couple times that day or the next with more doses. Takes care of it every time. Amazing. I am so thankful for this product! And the little bottle lasts a long time. Usually it clears it up so fast that I don’t need to take it more than two days in a row.

      A must have for mamas

      I’ve used this product through my last two baby’s breastfeeding journeys and I only wish that I had found it sooner/for my previous three babies. It has helped me clear clogged ducts and (fingers crossed) has allowed me to avoid antibiotics for my mastitis. You won’t regret this purchase!

      Tastes like nail polish remover

      I can’t say I have been taking this as recommended for my clogged duct because it takes so horrible like really horrible and diluting doesn’t really help . So idk if it would help my clogged duct - I also have a milk bleb - I took the gentlebirth tincture and it also was unpleasant but comparing the two this makes it seem like gentlebirth was waaaaay more tolerable than I thought lol I’m taking sunflower lecithin instead now

      Not 100% sure its helped me fully or by end of day like some people mention but it does help some. The taste if awful so buyer beware.

      So helpful

      This tincture really works. This is my second bottle and I will continue to use. I definitely recommend this product.

      Katie (Boca Raton, FL, US)
      Great stuff!

      This stuff worked quick and I’m here to buy more!

      Anonymous (Saskatoon, SK, CA)

      I think this helped. I have been struggling with something that I thought was a plugged duct for a few months and came across this. I used it alongside several other remedies and had some relief. It is not resolved so I can’t say for sure if this worked for me or not, likely there is another u deleting problem. I have used several other Wish Garden Herbs products and have been very happy with them.

      The best stuff!

      This stuff works! I have dealt with clog ducts for both my babies and have never found anything that actually worked until now! After just the first dose I noticed a difference! Now every time I feel a clog coming I take this and it’s usually gone by the end of the day! Highly recommend!

      How to Avoid Clogged Milk Ducts and Breast Engorgement

      Clogged duct breastfeeding is when a mother experiences a plugged milk duct. This often leads to poor milk flow and can be uncomfortable. Clogged duct breastfeeding can occur after an ailment in the breast, not allowing the milk to drain properly. It may also happen if the baby is not positioned correctly at the breast during feeding, which will lead to pressure on the clogged area of the breast.

      There are a variety of ways that women can avoid getting clogged milk ducts and breast engorgement, including the following: (1) Keeping the breasts emptied and relaxed to reduce the risk of clogged milk ducts. This can be done by hand (called expressing) or with a breast pump. The gentle pressure from rubbing or pumping will help encourage drainage of clogged milk and relieve discomforts. (2) If breastfeeding, releasing pressure on your breast from baby sucking by alternating between nursing positions or pausing for short periods when feeding. (3) Using herbal tinctures like WishGarden's Happy Ducts Lactation Support that contain gentle and postpartum-safe herbs like Usnea, Elder, Yarrow and Baptisia as an alternative treatment for clogged milk ducts. (4) You can also try putting a warm compress on the affected area, applying heat before nursing, or breastfeeding more often throughout the day.

      Clogged Milk Duct Symptoms

      A clogged milk duct is often a symptom of breast engorgement. Symptoms may include a sudden feeling of heaviness, discomfort or tenderness in the affected area, and swelling. If symptoms persist for more than two days, it's important that she sees her doctor or lactation consultant for additional help before any long-term damage occurs to her breasts or nipples from continued overuse of hormones.
