Just wanted to write it down really. I've woken up in agony with lumpy blocked ducts - kept the wrong bra on for sleeping and I think it has put pressure in the wrong places. Feeding ds (4 months) is like hot needles in my nipple and he keeps pulling away, making the pain excruciating!
I know I just have to feed through it, and massage the lumps, but I just wanted a bit of sympathy
Bless you xx I found my boobs felt better being free at night, mybe try it? I do have big boobs too, so it has to go on as soon as I get up. Oh and I have to carry them to the bathroom in the night if I need a wee
That's part of the reason for this today actually. He had his imunisations on Thursday and there's been more than a few comfort feeds in the last couple of days. Trust him to sleep through last night! I'll bet he won't do it tonight though.
Thanks for the support, I really do feel rotten, all my joints ache as well, flu symptoms.
I found a vest with boob support useful for sleeping in, as sleeping in a bra was v uncomfortable but needed something to keep pad in place to avoid waking in a pool of milk! Mine were from good old M+S and they also come in a larger cup size. Hope its better soon!
Hiya, yes it's mastitis! The red triangle appeared yesterday afternoon so I went along and got anti-biotics this morning. It's not so sore today anyway, but I still feel feverish and have sore joints. Hopefully will clear up quite quickly now I've started on the tablets.
Thanks for the suggestion mrsmick, I'll try one of those - I have the same problem with waking up in a puddle of milk
