I haven't posted since my son was .. gosh, maybe 6 months? I have had ALOT of support from you ladies, and wouldn't have made it this far without LLL.
My son just got over a virus and has been nursing like crazy, understandably so, well a few days ago I noticed I woke up with a bit of soreness from my left breast. I honestly thought i slept on it wrong. Another day went by, and I've started to get paranoid.. i've been feeling around and I know this sounds goofy but i'm not sure if i'm feeling a lump or a small hard ball at times.. nor can I really tell if it's moveable or not... yes, I am going to call about it, but before I lose another night of sleep over this, any insight would be helpful!!! I'm always thinking the worst (breast cancer, i'm one who panics over anything). **also have to add that his favorite breast to nurse/comfort nurse on is the breast that is "infected"
While i'm here, I feel like my son is one in a billion who doesn't sleep throughout the night.. he has had problems since he was 4 months old and his peds seem to think it's his constant ear infections, or his reflux... his only symptom is squirming at night and i have to have my arm under his back.. his usual pattern of sleep is waking up every 3 to 4 hours.. this isn't normal, we've tried every and all sorts of reflux meds and we will see a gi doc soon, but i'm just so curious to see, does this sound familiar with anyone? Can anyone here relate at all? He's 15 months going on 16 months on wednesday.
thanks a bunch everyone!!!!
