hi there, i asked this in the newborn feeding section and didn't get any response so i thought i would ask it here. has anyone heard of or been recommended to try GSE for chronic breast infections? my story is i have a history (with my now older daughter) of mastitis at least once a month. my son is now 1 month old and i have already had this happen once. i have been on antibiotics for it and don't really want to continue to go through this. i have an over-abundant milk supply and OALD. DS likes to go for 5 hr stretches in the night without nursing. this has led to serious engorgement that doesn't abate until at least 2 in the afternoon. i also start feeling that familiar pain in the outter sides of my breasts. i was thinking that if i take a preventative dose of GSE on a semi-regular basis (i.e. whenever engorgement gets serious) that i could avoid an infection.
opinions really needed pls.
