I have a good friend who is currently nursing her 5 month old. She says she's going to wean when he's 6 months. She has had oversupply issuses from the beginning and has to pump everyday. She has tried to wean off the pump, but whenever she stops pumping for a day and only nurses, she gets mastitis. She has had it 3 times so far.
I don't have any first hand experience with this problem, so I figured I'd throw this question out to you ladies. She's a SAHM, and I'd love for her to continue breastfeeding past 6 months but I don't know what to tell her. I think she is just so fed up with it at this point.
She says she never feels a plugged duct, she just suddenly has mastitis. She's not wearing underwire bras or sleeping on her stomach.
Any ideas to help her to stop pumping and continue breastfeeding?
