I would think super good healthy food would do that automatically but dd had the worst mastitis 3 or 4 times with her first child and not one bit of problem with her second. And she eats very healthy.<br><br>
She basically thinks it's the way the first latched on and never emptied the breast. The second one took every drop. Just her opinion. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
Diet is key, but if you are facing an acute infection homeopathic phytolacca 30C every half hour for six doses and three times a day after until symptoms clear. Lecithin granules (internal) as well as a castor oil pack (external) will reduce inflammation and emulsify the plug.
