My baby is now 4 weeks old and I'm breast feeding him along with pumping. I just found out yesterday that I have a breast infection, and I'm on antibiotics to get rid of it. My issue is that I'm still supposed to nurse on the infected breast, but my nipple pain is terrible when he first latches. It is definitly a toe-curling, burning pain! Both of my nipples are starting to crack a little. I let them air dry...I use lanolin and it doesn't seem to help. I have no clue what to do. I've been trying to get a hold of my local lactation consultant, but apparently she is a busy woman. I just feel very frustrated and alone. I do not want to stop breast feeding my baby, because I know it is the best thing for him. Any suggestions or experiences that could help me out?
