any moms familiar with mastitis? I just returned to work this past week- I'm a nurse working 13 hour shifts. Busy days means only pumping every 4-5 hours when I was breastfeeding at home every 3ish. Yesterday I spiked a fever, in hindsight have had tender (and often) engorged breasts (due to new pumping schedule). I have also experienced a decrease in supply.
I'm thinking I'm in beginning stages of mastitis...or hopefully just missed it. What do I need to do to either treat it or maintain it at bay? Ouch.
