Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice. Had mastitis for 3 weeks and had to have surgery yesterday to drain the breast abscess. Got home from hospital and its nearly 24 hours since the general anaesthetic so can feed again shortly.
DD has been on formula for the last day, but my boobs are leaking all over the place so I seem to have good supply.
Is it OK to just try her straight back on the boob? Was admitted to an adult ward so the docs couldnt give me much advice. The wound has a dressing on it and is on the top of my boob, so shouldnt be in the way of feeding.
Just worried as yesterday I was rushed in and didnt have any time to pump or get any spare milk. Can you swap between breast and formula or should I phase it back in?
