    Default Breats crisis

    It all started with my flat nipples bleeding. Once it healed, both infection and thrush stroke.
    I'm on my THIRD round of antibiotics (finishing in 4 days) and not only the breast still hurts but some Montgomery glands are inflammated and sore now!
    It's been around 8/9 weeks of this nightmare and STILL breastfeeding! on all sorts of vitamins, echinacea, leticin, breastfeding tea, loads of garlic...I really don't know what else to do!

    He is almost 10 weeks old, growing a lot actually!
    I think that what I might have it's called Milk blister. I'm trying with heat before the feeding and pumping. I noticed almost no milk is coming from the sore/blisted breast
