I delivered a month back. And from the beginning I was having issues with breastfeeding. Sore nipples, cracked nipples etc. Of late, I noticed a lump and due to the delay it developed into a breast abscess. I had to undergo a surgery to remove the lump and on treatment now. It sure hurts like hell. This is on my left breast. Now, I noticed a lump on my right breast . I do not want to go through the same, so will be meeting a doc tomorrow. However, this is getting extremely stressful. I want to breast feed my son. I cannot feed from my left breast for a couple of days until the wound heals and the milk in my right breast is very little. To top it all, I'm having this lump on my right breast. I'm giving him formula milk as well.
I'm wondering why does these lumps come very often.
I also feel my son is not too comfortable with the FM. He passes stool every time he drinks it. In fact he urinates almost 20 times a day. I've also noticed he appears constipated at times. I feel his urine is quite hot ( which i feel could be due to the antibiotics I'm taking) . I'm just not able to see his struggle. At the same time I feel thoroughly disappointed when I'm unable to bf him. I feel very stressed and almost feel like giving up bf but do not want to.
