If youโ€™re a breastfeeding mom, youโ€™ve definitely heard of mastitis. According to the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, approximately up to 20% of breastfeeding women develop mastitis during their breastfeeding journey, with most cases occurring during the first 6 weeks postpartum. Mastitis is an infection that develops within the breast tissue and is caused by a persistent, unrelieved plugged duct or a cracked or damaged nipple. . The beginning signs of mastitis usually include a warm, reddened area on the breast, breast tenderness, headache, body ache, chills, fever, and fatigue. . In order to treat mastitis properly, the breasts must be emptied frequently and efficiently. Now is not the time to stop breastfeeding, as breastfeeding is an essential part of treatment. Fortunately, the organism that most commonly causes mastitis (Staphylococcus) is not harmful to your baby. Rest is another key component to treating mastitis. Make sure to get as much bed rest as possible. Keeping your baby next to you will allow you to breastfeed and rest at the same time. . ๐Ÿ“ท @soykaylinda
