Re: Quick Question
My experience with oversupply taught me that it's not necessarily a unidirectional process where you go from oversupply to normal supply. I would be block feeding and block feeding and feeling like I was getting things under control, and then wham! The oversupply would be back again for no discernible reason. Just keep working at it- eventually it should adjust!
And, while I am with Susan that managing your engorgement and touch of mastitis can definitely be done without the antibiotics and pump, IF you get into a situation where the mastitis is worsening (fever is worse, you're getting flu-like feelings of chills and aches and pains, and seeing red streaks/patches on the exterior of the breast) and the nursing/heat/massage routine alone is not making things better, then it's time to call the doc for some antibiotics and haul out the pump. Treat the mastitis first, worry about the oversupply second.
Hope you feel better soon!
