Re: Sore breast! Mastitis?
The best way to stop mastitis is to empty the breast as thoroughly as possible. Nurse the baby on that side more often or at the beginning of every feeding, and if the baby isn't doing a good job of emptying the breast, use the pump to do what the baby isn't. Hot soaks, warm and cool compresses, varying your nursing position, and breast massage may all also help.
You can do everything right and still get mastitis, so if emptying the breast and the other measures listed above don't work for you, go see the doc. A course of antibiotics should clear things up, if this does turn into mastitis.
