(HealthDay News) -- Clogged milk ducts can affect a woman's ability to breast-feed, and cause pain and discomfort for mom.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to help prevent or alleiate clogged milk ducts:

  • To ease pressure on the breasts, avoid wearing tight, restrictive clothing or bras.
  • Change your nursing position, which may help alleviate the problem.
  • Don't sleep on your stomach.
  • Make sure baby is latched properly during feeding.
