I am a new mom of my second boy. I had alot of dificulty breast feeding with the first one and gave up after 2 months. I was super excited to try again and am feeling very discouraged only after 2 weeks!
My son will be 2 weeks tomorow and I have developed Mastiits in my left breast. I had to stop feeding from the actual breast for 2 days because I was so ill and in so much pain. I did however continue to pump. I was expressing a good amount of milk and try to relatch him on after I felt better but I can not get him onto the left breast. I have been latching him onto the right side and pumping the left side. The right side is producing about 4 oz and the left is pumping less than 1 oz and there is alot of thick mucus like matter coming out.
I don't know what to do. My husband is not very encouraging my friends don't understand and I am very upset about the thought of giving up. I have tried all the positions and the heat, warm baths, massaging, pumping... I need someone to help. If anyone can do so please lend some helpful words.
