Re: OALD, positioning, latch, mastitis
Ouch, mama! Sorry you've had such a rough spell of luck. Have you had the GI bug yourself for 3 weeks, or has it just been going through your house for 3 weeks? If it's you personally, I'd see the doc about it.
I think teal gave great advice. Some more possibilities:
- nurse reclined, but pump afterwards to empty the affected breast
- add a soy lecithin supplement to your diet (said to reduce plugs, can't hurt to try it)
- nurse in regular position but contact LC and see if she can help you tweak the latch
