Mastitis Schmastitis 13 July, 2008

Posted by monopod in Baby.

I think I may unintentionally have encouraged an already overactive milk supply by all this enthusiastic pumping. As a result I have to call my GP tomorrow morning because I may very well have given myself mastitis. Hurrah for squirty boobs.

No! But we had to go to the GP anyway for the little one’s 8-week developmental checkup so I asked the doc while I was there. He said that they would try not to give antibiotics anyway if I was breastfeeding and that if the fever had gone and the pain had lessened, to just keep on doing what I was doing (ibuprofen and the mother of all painful breast massages). Seem to be recovering gradually…

Oh, that’s such good news! It would be awful to give up breastfeeding. So it;ll be a case of gritted teeth and a fondle round your delicate bits, then? Could be worse!!
