    I have to agree with HotI. You are having such a bad run - maybe another perspective from an LC would help?

    Have you got lumps or hot spots in either breast? Why are you thinking mastitis?

    I have the initial bruised tender feeling (like I'm sprained the underside of my breast) and the headache starting. It's how the other three times started. Now it's starting to get the red streaking. I'm hoping I can get her to drain it properly and the poke root will work.

    I see the LC again on Thursday.

    Ouch

    Definitely get the feeds going. Drain that breast! Express if you need to! Massage, heat while feeding/expressing, use ice for pain relief after a feed if it helps.

    Hope it all settles soon.

    Lots of feeds and pump for a short time after feeds IF your nipples can handle it. You poor thing littleO- lots of hugs.
