Jay Cutler Unclogging Kristin Cavallari’s Breastmilk Is A More Common Problem Than You’d Think

Kristin Cavallari revealed in an episode on the second season of her E! reality TV show Very Cavallari that once while on vacation and away from her baby, her breast had gotten clogged and her husband, former Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had to manually unclog it for her.

“I had like, major clogged ducts,” Cavallari tells her friends in the clip. “Jay had to get them out for me. Sucking harder than he’s ever sucked,” adding in a second clip, “and you know what? Saved my life.”

A breastfeeding woman can experience one of her milk ducts getting clogged when the milk doesn’t empty out completely after a feeding or a pumping session, causing a blockage.

In one 2011 study, Refinery 29 pointed out, about 67.5% of breastfeeding women experienced mastitis, an inflammation of the breast often caused by clogged milk ducts, and an additional 4.5% of breastfeeding women experienced clogged milk ducts without mastitis. Both conditions lead to painful, sore breasts, and mastitis may also include a fever and chills. Mastitis can be treated with antibiotics, while clogged ducts can usually be unclogged at home, or with the help of a doctor.

I love that she shared that although I’m sure a lot of people will say they’re grossed out.

Once, years ago, I was attending the BET Awards in Los Angeles with a friend, after giving birth to my son about 6 months prior who I was still nursing my infant who was at home in Maryland with his dad. The pain became so unbearable mid show that I had to go to the bathroom to express the milk in the commode! Gross I know!

Years later, reading about British pop singer Adele saying she had to pump milk in the bathroom at the Grammys after giving birth to her son six years ago made me feel good that celebs are really just like us! ha!

Kristin Cavallari has a New Reality TV Show And Her Husband Jay Culter Is the Star

Having covered the Laguna Beach and The Hills’ alumn’s respective pregnancies, I try to keep up with their post mommyhood whereabouts. That’s going to be much easier these days for Kristin Cavallari fans (I’m one and defended her against her #1 online troll and became a page 1 Google page rank because of it).

She has a show that recently premiered on E! called Very Cavallari.

The docu series chronicles the shoe designer’s attempt to open a brick and mortar Nashville store of her  Uncommon James lifestyle brand.

According to Washington Post, The Ringer, Chicago Times, and Twitter, her husband, longtime Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler, steals the show and every single scene he is in.

That’s good because that’s ratings gold and means the show will be a hit! Woot! Good for her! Check out the trailer!
