I have a 3 month old who is exclusively BF. I work so I pump 2-3 times a day then nurse at home and overnoght. I have so much extra milk, about four gallon bags full of milk that I don't know what to do with, running out of freezer space and our island doesn't have a way to donate. Anyway, I am taking AB for the fourth time for a breast infection in same breast, same place. The bottle and the pharmacist say not to take while BF but the Dr insists it's fine. I fI don't take the meds, I'm miserable and used all my leave for after my son was born, so can't stay home without going without pay. I use the warm compresses, cabbage leaves, drink lots of water, etc. The side where the infection is has an inverted nipple, but he latches and feeds fine. I am just wondering if there is something I can do to prevent these?
And I am wondering what to do with all this milk? I had to throw out 9 bottle the other day because there is no room in fridge. I express about 9 oz at work and during the day while I am gone he only drinks about 5. So I have a major surplus.
