hi deepa, massage your breast before bath and give warm water compress. it softens the breasts. also since you have good flow of milk, press your breast between your index and middle finger to control the flow while nursing. I had same problem and my baby used to throw up due sudden gush of milk

you can also try warm water compress before start ing bf and then can offer left first. warm steam will loosen the lumps and your lo can latch then.

hi.... breast becomes hard when it is full... baby will find it difficult to suck when its hard/ full... in that case u need to squeeze out some milk and use spoon or paal adai and feed the baby initially later feed on the same breast... breast hardens shows u have good supply of milk its a gud ... i had same prob... i use to pump and store the milk and feed him later... another wqy to reduce breast hardening... u need to feed baby often... pls speak to ur gynic regarding the lump... that something i am not aware of... pls check asap
