My sister has a one month-old, and this is already her third time with fever/mastitis. She's been on antiobiotic since Tuesday, and she's still struggling with fever (today is Friday). She's ready to give up nursing. She's placing hot compress on her breast/ massaging/ pumping/ and nursing on that side first with each feeding.
Anyone had similar experience with reoccuring mastitis? I keep telling her that things will get better. But will it?
Well... I'm not sure if she's getting enough rest. I do keep tell her to relax.
She didn't have any latching on issues, sore nipples or cracked nipples. But she did complain right before this Mastitis that she's feeling shooting pains on her breast (not nipples). It was just for few seconds as her let down was coming. After her letdown, the pain went away. So, it wasn't much of a concern for her. I'm not sure if it's related or not.
