I have a 10 day old baby and 2 days ago developed severe mastitis in my right breast. The baby refuses to go on the right breast now. In a panic I gave her formula last night as my left breast was so sore trying to pick up the work of 2 breasts. She took 2 oz of formula in 5 minutes no problem!
I really do want to stick with the breastfeedign though. So, I have started to pump on the right and I'm going to offer her a bottle at the next feed (got 2oz so far and judging by what I am reading that should satisfy her for a feed.)
My question is, if she takes the bottle OK and but will not take back to my right breast, am I OK to breast feed of my left only and pump off my right only and feed her that way?
