“Dangle pumping/feeding” worked for me where you basically lean forward and have your boobs hang in front as much as possible. I dno why it worked but it did for me. I had them almost daily Hope you find some relief soon!!
Oh gosh . Just when you get rid of all the pregnancy symptoms you get this . Poor thing .
I recommend avoiding it! lol 10 days of antibiotics that I'm taking every 6 hours (just to add to the newborn feeds 😅)
Thanks hun. I want to avoid mastitis at all costs so I’m hoping I can clear the ducts myself. Hope the mastitis clears up quickly for you and isn’t too bad x
heat packs or warm shower, and massaging, sometimes I like do circle on the hard parts. If it's big and deeper I kinda do a squish and shake and poke. I have metastasis from this, and they put me on anti biotics right away cause my chest turned red.
Heat pack and massage the lumps and frequent feeds. If one breast is affected, start each feed on that breast to try to help maximise drainage of the affected breast. If both breasts are affected, start the feed from the breast baby last fed from to ensure it’s completely drained. If the lumps become tender or red or you have a fever or feel unwell you’ll need to see the doctor, mastitis can occur with these symptoms and best to get on antibiotics for it early (easier to treat when AB’s initiated early)
