Hello all. This is my first post and I'm happy to be a part of this forum. My son is 5.5 weeks old and our breastfeeding relationship is great! He's a big boy and gaining beautifully (9lbs 2oz at birth, 10lbs 4oz a week later, and 12lbs 11oz at his one month). His growth spurts have been especially tiring and we've been battling some green poop here and there, but all-in-all he's a super-happy boy!
I have a question regarding Mastitis. About 2 weeks ago my right breast hurt but the pain subsided within a day or two. Since then I have had no pain at all. 2 nights ago I came down with a low-grade fever (100) and chills but these went away with Tylenol and have not returned. That same day I noticed lumps under my right armpit. I am seeing my doctor for my 6-week pp appointment next week and will certainly ask him about this but I was curious if it is possible to have something like Mastitis with no specific breast-related symptoms.
