Re: Mastitis

I don't have alot of advice to offer, just LOTS of sympathy! I had it three times with my 2nd dd and 5 times so far with my twins. I know it's miserable and the pain is great. Hot showers are alleviating and ibuprophen helps with the fever. I got to use a hot tub one time while I was sick and that was wonderful! I've tried just about every prevention under the sun and no luck yet. Hang in there! Antibiotics don't usually take more than 24hrs. to start working. I've also heard to try to nurse with the baby's chin near the plug, if that's what it is.
