Hi Ladies, Just wanting to some advice from those in the know as I am fairly new to this. Breast feeding my little girl who is almost 5 weeks but last couple of days one of my breast has felt really tender in one area. Feels worse after feeds. I have been trying to feed from that side as much as possible and trying to empty breast (I am a bit unsure as to when it is completely empty). I have not got a red stop yet on the area but its really sore and I am wondering if it is the start of mastitis. If it is, what do I do to ease it? Do I need to visit the doctors or will it pass easily? I feel like I am coming down with something as well, so assuming they are related. Would appreciate any advice Thanks x
