:( Mastitis

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Bugger. Didn't get this with my first, didn't get mastitis with my son until 12 mos and here I am at 3 weeks and I've got the most sore right breast and all the flu-like symptoms (chills, exhaustion, and discomfort) that it comes with. Doing all the natural stuff I can do to fight this off - nursing frequently, drinking a lot, sipping on bone broth, and doing a rosemary tea. I just hate this...so frustrating to be dealing with this just 3 weeks in...

Aw dang!! Hope a night of rest (as much as you can get with a newborn) helped! How are you feeling today? I never got mastitis but did get clogged ducts every month or so with DS. Such a nerve-wracking thing to deal with!

Ugh! So sorry you are dealing with this now. I got mastitis with ds about a month in. Not fun at all. The fever only lasted for a little over 36 hrs for me, but every minutes was like an eternity and nursing was just so painful. Yuck! Hope it clears up fast!
