Re: Mastitis while EPing
I am sorry you are dealing with mastitis/sore nipple/achy breast.
It sounds like you are trying all the right techniques to combat the mastitis and even though it hurts like crazy to express the sore breast/nipple
you know that it is vital to keep the affected side comfortably soft and emptied.
My sister also exclusively pumped and she ended each pumping session by hand expressing both breasts to reach the ducts the pump could not reach.
