don't want to quit! please help!

I am on my second bout of mastitis and I am afraid that my only way to prevent it now is to wean. He is 13 months old so it could be ok, but I don't want to and I think if we could ask him he would not want to. lol. To say the least he loves nursing. I nursed my now 3 yr old till 18 months and only weaned because I was pregnant and needed that extra time for me before the new baby. I was also thinking I may go longer with him if I don't get pregnant (but yeah right . I am thinking that this is brought on by my period. I will know this week if that is the case. It was much much worse this time than last and I had to go on antibiotics as I was not responding to anything natural. My temp got up to 103.5 and that freaked me out. Nothing was working like last time. And I hate antibiotics so it was hard for me to get them but I could not go on.
So please help me! I can't go through this again. I have 4 boys so I need to be well. I am also homeschooling now. I also hate feeling so bad.
Thank you!

What kind of bra are you wearing? Could it be irritating your breast? Maybe your size has changed.

Good luck... Wish I had better advice.

and recurrent mastitis http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...-mastitis.html

You need to get your breasts emptied by either babe or pump. Get the milk flowing, hot showers, combing the hot area.

I don't think that weaning is the answer. Rapid weaning can make mastitis worse, way worse.
