Mastitis again

Ugh, I feel like crap and my two boys really don't care. DH is gone to work from 5am until 9pm and in bed by 10pm. I just need someone to give me a hug or two. This will be the 5th time I've had it, the first time since bfing dd. I can't remember, when do you go in? I think I always waited to go until I had a fever and was on my death bed.

Re: Mastitis again

Ugh - that is misery! I didn't even have to go in - my Dh called the OBGYN and told them what was going on and they phoned in a prescription for antibiotics right away. You might give your OBGYN a call and see if you can save the trip. Hugs to you indeed! And I hope you are feeling better very soon!

Re: Mastitis again

Yikes! Hope you feel better soon. My doc says to call/go in right away.

Best advice he gave me was to nurse with the LO's chin pointing toward the pain/clog. Last time mine was at the top of my boob so LO nursed laying in bed, up-side down lol.

Hope you get to feeling better!

Re: Mastitis again

HUGS! I feel for you, the first 2 months of BF'ing was so bad for me I almost gave up.
I say get the med's now and the minute you get a temp take it. No one wants to ride around in a car when you feel like that, it would be nicer to have it at the ready.
I took a hot shower then nursed, put her chin toward the clog and bf'ed with her on the bed and me hanging over her - not easy but gravity did help. you may need another hand to make sure your DD can breath. it was a funny sight, me with my butt in the air and my boob smothering my girl
It will get better, get lots of rest if you can
