Question for a friend.
Baby is less than two weeks.. She posted today on Facebook about having pain, fever. Left baby with sitter to go to hospital. Plugged ducts, and infection. Gets antibiotic and tylenol 3, told NOT TO BREASTFEED!!! Is that right? I thought you were supposed to bf MORE then????
So she's not bf, she was before she went to the doctor but now thinks she was making the baby sick because she was spitting up yellow clumpyness(said it looked like formula spit up). So she believes the doctor is right that she should not breastfeed. She's not pumping because she said "too sore, it hurts". Said hot shower didn't help. So she is not doing anything to get the milk out, just taking the meds and "hoping" her milk doesn't dry up before she feels better. That's what the doctor told her to do-to not nurse, just take the meds and hope she might still be able to nurse after she's better.
Is it normal/ok for baby to have yellow icky spit up when you have mastitis???
