I am just recovering from maybe my sixth mastitis infection. I've been BF for 15 months and have no intentions of weaning my LO. I am baffled as to why I keep getting this awful infection. I eat well and do not wear a bra with wires. I haven't been stressed lately, although I believe stress has caused them in the past. I have found that eating certain chocolates has contributed to a plugged duct before, but I haven't eaten the brand that I thought was causing the plugged duct lately. Also, I always seem to get it in my left breast more often than my right. Is that stange?
Any thoughts or suggestions as to why this infections repeatedly invades? I'd love some answers.
