    Default Still feeding but wearing underwire - question

    Hi everyone,
    I'm still feeding DS twice a day, and have gone back to wearing nice supportive underwire bras. So far, no problems (it's been a week or two). I'm just wondering if anyone has done this and got mastitis?

    I'm going to Fiji and planning on dropping the morning feed and if I did get mastitis it would really suck. I called the ABA helpline and the counsellor reckoned i'd probably be ok but obviously couldn't guarantee anything.

    Has anyone got any advice or experience? TIA.

    I don't want to go back to wearing my nursing bras over there if I can help it.

    I stopped wearing breastfeeding bras when my DD was about 1, I missed my sexy lacy underwire bras lol. She is 22 months now and I have never had mastisis and we are still feeding

    I've been wearing underwire bras for a while now (DS2 is one year old). I just got really over wearing ugly nursing bras...I had a couple of nice ones but the nice nursing bras are way overpriced, IMO. Plus I wear a lot of singlets and all of my strapless bras have underwire. I haven't had any issues.

    Seems there's a few of us who got sick of ugly stretchy nursing bras. It's reassuring none of you have had problems. Thanks
