Do you like the binder? I'm sorry to hear about your mastitis maybe a different bra would help? I'm also prone to it, and I have found in the past that if I over-do it, I am likely to wind up on my back with a bout of it. How do you feel after your run this morning?
Congrats Mama!!!

Edelweiss- make you're in-laws a list of what they can do. You need help, not people to entertain. Seriously, you are totally justified in doing that, so don't even feel bad for a second if you do it!
