I am JUST getting over my 2nd case of mastitis (which I did chase away without antibiotics - yay)....

And hubbie jokes before bed to Ivy that she needs to sleep 5 hours. I gave him crap because he knows how engorged I'd be.

Well, he should have eaten those words! She went nearly 4 and 1/2 hours between feedings! I woke up super engorged! Talk about tempting the mastitis to come back. Had to pump after she ate too, as she was full before I was empty.

At least I got a 3 1/2 hour stretch of sleep. Most I've slept in a single chunk since before she was born!

Sorry things were so painful, but yay for you for making so much milk! Hopefully things will start to balance themselves out for the two of you now that she's sleeping better and the mastitis has cleared up.

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!

I fear the sleeping that long was an anomoly. She's been super fussy tonight and has not eaten well, so we'll see when she wakes tonight.

I am so tired of dealing with engorgement and now mestises.
I can so relate.
Week one I was engorged
Week two really engorged due to pumping a bit and cold cabbage and cool shower on my breasts helped as well as Tylenol and Advil
By week three my breasts felt great but baby Clara's cold got worse from week 2. She struggled through feedings and sleeping.
Now this week I believe I have mestises! Tonight after bringing baby fr om MILs place she is overstimulated and its 4 hrs still not sleeping and crying here and there.
I so understand how annoying this is and hope its true what they say that breasts get the hang of it by two months.
Hope you catch up on sleep and get rest and mastitis doesn't come back.

I hope that you don't get Mastitis again! It's horrible! !!! I went 4 hrs before pumping and got 18 oz tonight . I need to figure out how to produce less without getting Mastitis again.
