Morning! Had the best night sleep last night. All my horrible body and joint aches finally subsided. Mastitis is horrendous! Felt so dead yesterday. At least now the infection is under control.
Last nite baby looked for me so I nursed him on right boob and he slept. This morning too he already 120ml formula still woke up to cry and I let him drink from right side. He burped! First time drank my breast milk and burped!
Gp says when my nipple heals can let him suck the left boob. I am trying now while typing...gritting my teeth now. I hope he can suck all the milk out cos that boob is now hard and bigger than the right.
Q : if that boob is now hard and baby still can latch on, is it poss he draw out milk ok?
Q : if I nurse him on right, will both breasts fill or will only right boob be filled with milk later. I hope by him sucking on right my body won't make more on left else more engorged there. But GP says both will fill even if he only sucks on right. Can tell me if its true?
Q: if I dont't massage dont't let baby drink just take medication will the milk in boob just go away?
wobbly, I had three blisters so far but two of them resolve with a boiled needle. But the last one was troublesome and even after I tried to resolve it, my left breast got infected as the duct was plugged and I got mastitis. It's nitemare!
rachelling, but if we keep getting blisters we can't be running back to LC all the time just for that right?
Dr says try avoid fatty foods cos it can cause milk to be more oily and cause plugged ducts.
i dont't know how my supply will be now but I just want to resolve the hard boob for now.
