    Honestly, I would probably go home and get it. The longer milk sits in the infected area, the more the infection is going to have a nice warm place to incubate.

    So, I'm definitely feeling better. The nipple area is still sore; I wonder if the clog is right under the nipple. It's hard to massage that area, when that is the part in his mouth! And I am miserably bad at hand expressing.

    This morning, I woke up with a lot of joint pain. Could this be related to the mastitis? I have a follow-up appointment with the doctor this afternoon.

    I'm a bit confused on weaning now, because clearly I have more milk than I thought I did. I guess I need to be very careful about switching sides as I wind things down.

    The wind-down goes best when you're super-slow and cautious. Especially if you're prone to breast infections.

    One of the symptoms of mastitis is "aches and pains", so that would match well with the joint pain.
