    Default Fever and Aches Again!!

    I am currently bf my 2 1/2 month old son. This is the fourth time since he was born that I woke up achey and with a slight fever. At this point my fever seems to be gone but I am still really achey. The last three times this lasted for one day and then I felt fine the next day. I've been putting heat on my breasts, resting and drinking oj...hopefully that helps. Is this normal? I really don't want to take antibiotics if I don't have to. Any advice would be great! Thanks!
