Hello there fellow milk-makers!
I've been diagnosed with low-grade mastitis (I feel dreadful, so I'd hate to have a bad case!) on my left breast. I was feeling off colour all week but the breast pain only really started on Sunday. Since the breast pain and swelling started on my left breast my DD5mnths is very reluctant to feed on that side. She will start sucking and then pull off. I keep putting her on there anyways just to make sure my supply is maintained on that side and am expressing to relieve the engorgement, and letdown and supply on that side seem fine. But it made me wonder if perhaps the mastitis is making the milk taste different on that side??? She's feeding normally on my right side and has never really favoured a side before. Has anyone else experienced something similar??
