This is my first ever post and I'm hoping someone has some advice worth sharing.
Due to a really bad experience in hospital with breastfeeding I decided to formula feed my baby (unfortunately too late to be given medication to dry up my milk).
In the first week back at home I was sick with Mastitis, I went on antibiotics and also went to a Lactation consultant to help me deal with it. As I became better I felt fantastic, however I then came down with it again.
I'm expressing every 4 hours day and night plus looking after a baby who never wants to sleep. I have just got over it but I feel like I'm about to get it again.
Please help! Has anyone else had this problem?! It's really making me quite depressed and I'm struggling from day to day to enjoy my new baby.
I've tried cabbage leaves, Ice packs, Heat packs and also massaging in the shower. I'm at breaking point..is there anything I can do?
I'd appreciate any feedback as I'm desperate.
