ow. i have mastitis as of last night. i went to the hospital and they gave me iv antibotics, pain meds. etc.
just started oral anitbotics, taking tylenol, hot compresses, etc.
I'm wondering this:
when i pump on the affected side i only get about 1 oz. is that going to be enough to clear it up? i don't want to nurse my baby on that side because i was bleeding out my nipple, yuk. i've been pumping about every 2-4 hours. my baby is 11 months (and i suspect he is starting to wean).
