DD2 is 7.5 weeks. We use nipple shield and pump and use SNS.
My 3yo accidentally gave me a WWF elbow to the breast last night (seven hours ago). I was laying on the couch and she was climbing and fell elbow first into my breast. She hit right below my nipple. A few hours later my breast is swollen and hard and is throbbing and killing me. It is kind of swollen and a little red. It might be bruising, I can't tell yet. I have pumped it twice (12am) and (3am). It did seem to get softer after pumping but it is so sore that it is hard to tell. I fed her once on it at 10pm and at the end of the feed I got the cold chills so bad I couldn't stop shaking for almost an hour. It was so freaky and weird. My temp was only 99.7 at that time. It is now 100.5. I am putting cool on it now and massaging it a bit.
On a side note, I have been intertaining some mastitis on my other breast since Thursday. The fever was down and the redness was down so I assumed it was getting better. It still feels better. So I don't know if I could have passed it to the other breast??? I am pretty sure this is just related to the injury tonight.
I don't feel like feeding her now. DH is feeding her a bottle while I pump. I am too sore from the violent shakes I had for an hour. I will feed her next time.
But what should I do now and what is making the breast so hard? Did I injury a duct? I googled and searched LLLi.org but didn't find anything. I can't call my ibclc for another 5 hours so thought I would ask here.
