Keep pumping! Blockage usually is quite painful or you can feel lump in your breast. Pumping is exhausting but you'll need patience and perserverance. If you've just given birth or still below 4 mths pp, you'll need to pump 8-12 times a day to increase your supply. Try to do power pumping too especially when your baby is asleep. I often do it only at night when baby is already in bed. By 4 mths normally your supply is established and you can already pump 4-5 hrly to maintain your milk supply.
