I have just been diagnosed with mastitis. My baby is one month old. I have been pumping because my baby chews more than he sucks. Since the mastitis I have been having very liitle production from the infected breast. The doctors have told me to pump as often as possible to help clear the infection out. I am concered that with such little production (.5oz where the other side is 3-4oz) it will not clear up or will not increase production as my baby needs it. At this point I am needing to supliment with formula regularly to keep up with his needs.
How can I get this flowing? Will it just do it on its own or should I be doing something to help?
