Re: MRSA infection in breast. My story. Thanks for reading.

Hi there,
I found your story through a Google search recently. I had a very similar experience in August of 2008, about 4 weeks after the birth of my 1st child, I was hospitalized for 3 days for a mastitis which was MRSA. The main difference is that my son seemed to have the MRSA infection from the hospital during or after delivery, and I got it in my breast from breastfeeding him. I am now pregnant with my 2nd child, due in Dec. 2011. I had a question about whether or not you were able to successfully breastfeed your 2nd baby & if there were any precautions taken in case you may be colonized so that the new baby was not exposed to the MRSA. Thanks for any information you may have.
