Mastisis ??
 
Has anyone experienced this? I am right now, and it is miserable. I'm all achey and gross feeling. Not to mention my right breast is SO SORE. Apparently, I am supposed to be on bed rest for 24 hours, which I did not expect! I've been more busy lately, getting life back to normal, doing chores and errands etc, which is what can bring mastisis on.

BOOOO! I am terrible at keeping still, and staying in bed.

Ok, it's spelled Mastitis.

Ouch!!

I have not experienced this but I have had clogged ducts before & the pain is horrible! Lots of warm compresses, massage, hot.shower & frequent pumping on that side should help. Did you get antibiotics?

Hope you feel better soon!

I sympathize. I have had it 4 times in the past. I would rather go through unmedicated birth than one more mastitis, seriously. I had it the week before last with Fiona... I overproduce milk so I tend to get it with every kid. Hopefully we won't get it again, it's the worst. :(

Do you have any other issues linked to over supply? Like fore-milk/hind-milk imbalance? Does your baby cough and choke on milk during let down?

Fortunately (I guess you could say) she is a forceful eater so she tends to keep up with the flow and takes huge gulps. She still has some times she'll have to gasp or breathe and then cough some. I have to be careful ab the hindmilk thing esp when she cluster feeds. Not draining it well enough will get me plugged quickly. Also dealing with nighttime engorgement and daytime leaking although it's a little better than with my other kids.

Anddd I'm back on the antibiotics because I came down with it again on Friday! :( So frustrating.
