My baby is 6 weeks old Friday. We have been nursing with no trouble at all. I really felt like I was making too much milk, because I had constant leaks. Yesterday afternoon I noticed my right breast was sore. I thought I had a possible clogged duct. I also developed chills and a fever which has lasted about 24 hours now. I have been using hot compresses and nursing more on that side, I don't feel any more lumps but today there is some redness. Also yesterday it was painful to touch which has gone away.
In addition, we seem to have hit a growth spurt, she has been nursing about every hour 1/2 with only one poopie diaper all day (usually 4-5).
Any ideas appreciated.
