So when my LO was about 6 months old, I got mastitis. Doctor put me on antibiotics to clear up the infection, and we were done with that little episode. Last night I noticed it was hurting when L was nursing on my right side in bed.
I blew off the pain as him using his little chompers because he's teething. Well tonight when he was nursing it hurt again. I just happened to come into the bathroom for a bath and noticed my boob has a knot in it (so probably a clogged duct), but it's red right where the knot is (not something I experienced last time). Does this mean infection again? I'm not too worried about it since this has happened before.
But, is there anything I can do to work out the clog before resorting to a doctor?? Between my toddler, work, and life itself I don't think i'll get time to head to the doctor.
Any advice or tips would help. Thanks LLLadies!
