Yes. Make sure the infected breast is empty as much as possible without neglecting the other. If you feel clogged ducts massage them. You can even take a massager or anything that gently vibrates and put on the lump to help break it up. Warm compresses help also. Good luck! BF is an amazing bonding experience and I hope you are able to go as long as you want.
I had mastitis with my first, omg so painful. I feel for you. ♡ ♡ ♡ I took very very hot showers and massaged my breats in the shower. Don't be alarmed when it squirts! Cabbage leaves can decrease your milk supply. I say anything warm to break up those clogged ducts. Did they say if you had puss at all? I had a 104° fever, the chills, I couldn't stop shaking, I also fainted, my breast was red and very swollen. I had no clue what I had. I hope you feel better soon! ♡ hugs! ♡
Thanks ladies.. this whole time I was thinking I didn't have enough milk supply. Does it always result in too much milk? I had a really high fever, and no there was no puss. I'll definitely do the shower thing. Thank you so much ladies! :) breastfeeding became really difficult. I'll keep trying
