Since my dd started solids (which she has taken to with great enthusiasm) I have had a series of problems with breastfeeding.
Mastitis three times, followed by a blocked milk duct, followed by milk blisters on both sides. Then I had a week or two of pain free feeding only to develop thrush in my boobs (diagnosed myself thanks to mumsnet and kellymom!) which I treated.
I have woken up this morning with really intense pain on my right side. I have a milk blister there but there is a hard bit that feels like a blockages. I also feel quite fluey and as if I am coming down with mastitis
I am feeding my toddler once a day, and eight month old dd is fed on demand. She does not have a real routine, I have just followed her lead which is not consistent. She is BLW.
Would establishing a routine help? If so, what would be a good one for an eight month old?
Thanks for getting ths far, it is a bit of an essay, sorry.
